EMPLOYEE MATCHING PROGRAM
Many companies have a matching gift program; you give an amount and they donate the same. All you have to do is ask. 100% of both donations directly fund water projects for those in need.
Through matching gifts programs you can double, triple, or maybe even quadruple your donation. Employers often offer their employees the matching-gifts incentive to encourage charitable giving – sometimes, they even extend their matching program to include donations made by an employee’s spouse or by retired employees, or to match volunteer hours.
The donation from the company is what is called a matching gift, and it is a benefit that many corporations offer to their staff. Corporations may double, triple, or even quadruple charitable gifts on behalf of both US and Canadian employees.
What’s an easy way to double your contribution to your favourite charity?
“Most large employers have employee charitable matching programs and in many cases this is a dollar match up to a certain yearly limit. This was the situation in my particular case and I found it a wonderful way to ‘double’ my personal contribution to the Ryan’s Well Foundation. It has an additional benefit in that the charity you champion is added to the pool of charities recognized by your employer. This allows fellow employees to select your chosen charity and also do employee charitable matching. It is a win-win for you, your employer, and your chosen charity and it costs you nothing except maybe a bit of paperwork.”
