The Most Comprehensive and Up-to-Date Database of Matching Gift and Volunteer Grant Programs

Learn how we build and maintain our matching gift database.

How we Build Our Database

We have a dedicated team of database researchers who build and maintain a database of all current matching gift programs.

Community Relations Departments

Part of a company’s Community Relations Department’s goals are centered around publicizing their charitable giving programs. We maintain relationships with many corporations, while others contact us to be included within our database.

Matching Gift Program Administrators

Many companies outsource the administration of their matching gift programs to third party companies such as Cybergrants, YourCause, Benevity, and Causecast. Over the years we’ve built relationships with many of these corporate platforms and they help to maintain accurate and up-to-date information.

Colleagues and Peers

Double the Donation’s staff maintains a network of colleagues who work at most major companies. This vital network is committed to getting your organization the most up-to-date information on matching gift policies.

Website Visitors

As the go-to destination for matching gift information for nonprofits, donors provide regular feedback. Whether this is data on new company programs, program changes, or simply providing us with updated matching gift forms, this feedback ensures up-to-date matching gift information.

Corporate Websites

Some companies do a great job of providing up-to-date contact information, guidelines, and forms directly on their websites. We leverage automated tools to discover new programs and monitor existing programs for changes.

Nonprofit Clients

We want to ensure that our database is robust. Don’t be surprised if we ask you to share a list of companies that matched one or more donations to your organization in the last year, we’re simply maintaining our world-class database.
