What Is It?
Many companies want to support the causes that are important to their employees. So, these companies set up charitable giving programs through which they match employee donations to eligible 501(c)(3) organizations (nonprofits). Some employers’ donations are equal to the amount given by the employee, while other employers offer a variety of matching amounts. These donations are tax-deductible.
Volunteer grants are another form of gift matching. Some companies offer monetary donations to match the employees’ volunteer work. In these cases, companies will donate a certain amount of dollars per hour or a certain amount of dollars after many hours to the nonprofit organization. You don’t have to volunteer at the same organization where the money is donated.
Contact your Human Resources department to learn about your company's matching gift program.
