About Double the Donation

Our Mission

At Double the Donation we provide the tools and resources to help nonprofit organizations and schools increase fundraising from corporate employee matching gift and volunteer grant programs. It’s our mission to help organizations generate the funding that’s necessary to focus on their core missions of education, community enrichment, scientific research, or charitable giving.

Our History

Double the Donation was founded when Adam, Double the Donation’s President, was working at a major bank and made donations to his university, the local Big Brothers Big Sisters organization, and LLS. By the time he realized his company had a matching gift program it was too late to get many of those donations matched. Discussions with multiple nonprofits revealed viewed matching gifts as bonus money so Double the Donation was started to help organizations proactively grow their matching gift revenue.

Our Beliefs

At Double the Donation we believe we can affect the impact thousands of organizations can have on their communities. Through providing tools and resources to help nonprofits grow their revenue we can indirectly provide support to individuals in need, encourage strong educational achievements, play a role in bringing arts and cultural events to communities, save the environment, and support countless other initiatives.

We are a team of passionate professionals, ready to do whatever it takes to help you increase matching gift revenue.

Adam Weinger

President

Adam is blending his corporate experience with nonprofit fundraising. He studied finance and economic development at Emory University and abroad at the Singapore Management University before working in the private sector at Comcast and Capital One. Both companies offered generous corporate giving programs, yet most employees had no idea.

After speaking with a host of nonprofit organizations about the need to access matching gift funds in a cost effective way, Double the Donation was born.
