Did you know that there is a way to make your gift to Heart’s Home USA twice as valuable?
Many donors, in fact, are unaware that their employers often have programs that will match each employee’s gift to a charitable institution.
Matching Gift Programs are fairly common, particularly in Fortune 500 corporations and even in any smaller companies. These programs will make an additional donation on behalf of the employees’ choice.
Usually the match is dollar for dollar, but some corporations will double or triple the employee’s original gift.
Taking advantage of the matching gift program is easy. Your organization’s human resources office can tell you if your company has a matching gift program and how it works. Some companies will even allow you to make your charitable donation through payroll deduction.
Matching gifts from an employer are allocated to the same purpose as the employee’s original gift. For example, if you are supporting a Heart’s Home missionary, your employer’s matching gift will be used for the same purpose - thereby doubling the effectiveness of your donation.
