Welcome to GiveDirectly's Matching Gift Resource Page

GiveDirectly allows donors to send money directly to the extreme poor in East Africa with no strings attached. Our approach is guided by rigorous evidence of impact and by our core values of efficiency, transparency, and respect.

An easy way to double your contribution is through employee giving programs.

Many corporations match employee donations (or the tax deductible component of your membership) to our organization.

Thanks for checking to see if your company offers these programs!
