MATCHING GIFTS

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees, doubling or sometimes tripling the impact of your support.  If your company is eligible, please request a matching gift form from your employer and send it completed and signed with your gift.  We’ll take care of the rest.  Some companies even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses!
