Many employers sponsor matching gift programs for charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees.
What Is a Matching Gift Program?
It is a program that is a part of most companies’ contribution policies that allow the company to contribute financially to nonprofit organizations that their employees support.
How Does It Work?
When an employee contributes to a qualified nonprofit organization, the company matches that contribution, sometimes doubling or even tripling it. For example, if you give $50 to NPH USA, your employer may donate $50 or $100 to NPH USA.
How Do I Find Out If My Employer Has A Matching Gift Program?
Search for your employer here!
Not all companies register their matching gift programs. If your employer does not appear in the search results, please ask your Human Resources representative, benefits administrator, or supervisor if you have a Matching Gift Program. If your company has a Matching Gift Program but is not listed here, please let us know so we can add it.
If your employer does not have a matching gift program, please encourage them to participate!
Who Can Participate?
Employees, retirees, spouses and their immediate family members may participate. If a company with a Matching Gift Program employs you, your spouse or your children, each of your gifts to NPH USA may qualify for a matching gift. You may also be able to participate if you or your spouse are receiving benefits under a company pension plan.
How Do I Get Started?
- Ask your employer for a contribution/matching gift form or online matching website.
- Complete the paper or online form with your gift information.
- If using a paper form, send to the national NPH USA office for approval. We will be notified of your online matching requests.
If your company does not have a form, please contact your regional NPH USA office and we will be happy to send you one.
