Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees, retirees and/or employees’ spouses. About 65 percent of Fortune 500 Companies offer matching gift programs and over 18 million individuals work for companies with matching gift programs. If your company offers a charitable matching gift program, you must initiate the matching gift through your company.
