Matching Employee Gifts

WHAT IS A MATCHING GIFT?

The math on matching gifts is simple. Your employees donate. You help them do TWICE THE GOOD.

Your employees already want to make a positive change in the world by supporting Direct Relief, and implementing a matching gift program is a great opportunity to encourage charitable giving and increase employee engagement within your company.

WHY A MATCHING GIFT PROGRAM IS GOOD FOR YOUR COMPANY:

  • Increases visibility – employees are seen in the community as good corporate citizens, and puts your company’s name in the philanthropic spotlight.
  • Promotes more strategic philanthropy.
  • Improves external public relations – establishes meaningful relationships in your community and with supported organizations.

WHY A MATCHING GIFT PROGRAM IS GOOD FOR YOUR EMPLOYEES:
