Why not learn more about corporate matching gifts and see if the company you work for might double your donation to The Willow School today!
In fact, hundreds of corporations and organizations match the charitable gifts of employees to non-profit corporations. This means that your employer will make a donation to your nonprofit as a result of your contribution.
In the United States alone, about 10 percent of all corporate philanthropy is through matching gifts, and about 1 in every 10 gifts to a nonprofit is eligible for a match!
Most corporations will match gifts made by their employees to educational institutions such as independent schools, hospitals, health-services organizations and other nonprofits. Typically, a company has a maximum limit to matching gift funding during a single year.
Corporate matching gifts are also not only for one year. It is an ongoing program. This means that you can double your gift every school year!
Most companies and corporations love to participate in this program because the company is listed as a donor and can then report to the community that they and their employees are supporting great non-profit efforts such as The Willow School here in Indian River County.
In addition, you get to see your donation doubled!
Please inquire with your company to determine if they have a matching gift program. Typically, you will need to contact your company’s human resources department. They should provide you with a matching gift form. Then simply complete your brief section of the form, enclose it with your gift, and Willow will do the rest. This independent school in Indian River County appreciates it!
