What are Matching Gifts?
Matching gifts are donations made by your employer to a non-profit organization to match a donation you made to that organization. Even retirees and spouses can have their gifts matched by many companies.
What are Dollars for Doers grants?
A corporate contributions program that donates cash grants to qualified non-profit organizations based on a level of employee involvement, usually as volunteers or board members. The effects of this program are two-fold; it allows the employee to donate his or her time to an organization that they value, while the company acknowledges its employees’ dedication by donating cash to the same cause.
Why Matching Gifts?
An employer matching gift doesn’t ask for more money or volunteer time from you; it’s just collecting money that’s already offered by your employer. With minimal effort, you can double your impact that your contribution has for Habitat for Humanity of Jacksonville. It’s easy and it costs nothing!
How do I Get a Matching Gift or Dollars for Doers grant from my Employer?
