Matching Gift Integration | Three Methods for Nonprofits and Fundraising Platforms
One of the most common questions received by Double the Donation’s sales and customer support teams is around the different ways to integrate matching gift information into a website or platform. We support three different integration options:
- Host match pages on Double the Donation’s servers (designed for individual nonprofits)
- Embed match information directly on the nonprofit’s website (designed for individual nonprofits)
- Use our matching gift API (designed for fundraising platforms and service providers)
Host Matching Gift Pages on Double the Donation’s Servers
The easiest way for a nonprofit to share matching gift information with its donors is by building matching gift pages hosted on Double the Donation’s website. This option is included in all pricing tiers and can be done instantly through our online account set up process.
During the online sign up process you’ll choose a URL (ex. https://doublethedonation.com/xyzorganization) which will become your nonprofit’s custom matching gift website. You’ll enter basic information about your organization including:
- A description of your nonprofit
- Your organization’s contact information
- Upload a logo
- Choose a background color
That information is then automatically combined with our searchable database of companies which match employee donations or offer grants for volunteering into a site which you can share with your donors and supporters. Here are a few examples:
Example #1: Lafayette Partners in Education Matching Gift Page
Example #2: Atlanta Botanical Garden’s Matching Gift Page
Sign up and build your own matching gift pages on Double the Donation’s servers.
Embed Match Information Directly on a Nonprofit’s Website
For organizations looking to integrate matching gift information directly on their own website, we also provide the ability to embed our matching gift widget.
This involves adding seven lines of code (generated automatically when organizations subscribe to select tiers) to the appropriate pages on the nonprofit’s website.

Suggested locations to include our matching gift widget include:
- Dedicated match pages
- Ways to give pages
- Donation screens
- Confirmation screens
Here are a few examples:
Embedded Example #1: New York Public Media
Embedded Example #2: National Kidney Foundation
Nonprofits can maintain a fully branded user experience by integrating our matching gift search directly into pages hosted on the nonprofit’s website.
Sign up and embed matching gift information on your own site.
Use our Matching Gift API
The previous two options were integration methods for a single nonprofit but Double the Donation also provides a matching gift API for partners such as:
- Peer-to-peer fundraising platforms
- Donor management / CRM software
- Online donation platforms
- And any other companies interested in providing employee matching gift data to nonprofits and their donors
Our API provides complete access to the raw matching gift data making it easy for you to incorporate matching gift information into your company’s own service.
