More than 1,000 companies offer matching gift programs and many provide this benefit to spouses/partners, as well as to retired employees. Depending on your employer’s policy, your generous contribution can be matched anywhere from 50%-200%! Most corporate matching gifts are unrestricted and are a great way for donors, like you, to substantially magnify the impact of their own gifts.
Check with your company’s human resources office to see if your employer has a matching gift program. If so, your company may ask you to complete a simple form to request a matching gift. Your company’s matching gift will not only help Nourish International, it will enhance the value of your personal contribution and increase our ability to support students and empower communities to make a lasting impact on extreme poverty.
1. Obtain a matching gift form and program guidelines from your human resources office.
2. Fill in the Employee section of the form and send it to Nourish International along with your donation or, if you’ve made your contribution online, simply complete the form and send by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail it to:
Attn: Development Coordinator
200 N. Greensboro St.,
Carrboro, NC 27510
3. We will complete the form and return it to your employer’s matching gifts office for processing. The company will send its matching donation directly to Nourish International (TAX ID:83-0462309).
Many companies disburse matching gifts on a quarterly or yearly schedule. To reduce administrative expenses, we will not forward a notice to employees when matching contributions are received. If you ever have a question about your company’s matching donation, please contact your human resources or matching gifts department.
If you would like more information regarding employee matching programs, please contact Nourish’s development staff (email@example.com).
