Matching Gifts:
Make Your Donation Go Twice As Far

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.
