Matching Gift Database Updates

At Double the Donation, we know our nonprofit clients rely on us to provide up-to-date matching gift forms and guidelines to their donors.

Double the Donation’s team is hard at work ensuring we have the most current matching gift information available for all of the companies we track.

Annual Updates:

While some companies modify their matching gift programs on a whim, or tie their benefit plan changes to a fiscal year rather than calendar year, the majority of companies finalize their benefit plans in early September / October of each year.

It’s during this time that changes to the core structure of each company’s matching gift program is typically outlined.

These include guidelines such as:

  • Is a matching gift program offered?
  • Is a volunteer grant program offered?
  • What are the minimum and maximum amounts matched?
  • What employees are eligible?
  • What nonprofits are eligible?
  • What grants amounts are awarded based on volunteer hours?

We place the heaviest emphasis on reviewing and updating our company data from November through January of each year.

Whenever we make an update, the changes are automatically reflected on all of our nonprofit clients’ matching gift websites and installed plugins.

Ongoing Updates:

Our goal is to ensure our database of matching gift and volunteer grant information remains up-to-date at all times.

We average multiple updates to our database every single day.

These updates include:

  • New URLs to submit matching gifts
  • New URLs to guidelines
  • New vendors administering match programs for a company
  • New contact information for a company’s matching gift coordinator
  • New companies with matching gift programs
  • Changes based on feedback from clients or companies

Whenever we make an update, the changes are automatically reflected on all of our nonprofit clients’ matching gift websites.

Like any large database, information changes. Let us know if you see any information that is outdated >
