What are company matching gift programs?
Matching gift programs are charitable giving programs set up by corporations in which the company matches donations made by employees to eligible nonprofit organizations such as Carolina Crown.
For example, if a donor works for Bank of America and donates $250 to Carolina Crown, Bank of America will "double the donation" by writing a check for $250 to Carolina Crown.
How many companies match employee donations?
Matching gift programs are offered by companies across the world. In fact, about 65% of Fortune 500 companies (and many others) match employee donations. That means millions of individuals like you work for companies that match donations from employees.
Although corporations don't always release specific figures, top contributors in 2012 included Microsoft (more than $48 million) and GE (more than $37 million).
