Membership Matching:
An employee may not accept any item of more than the nominal value when making a donation or requesting a match, even if the employee is eligible to receive a complimentary item. Examples of items of nominal value include t-shirts or key chains. Examples of items of more than nominal value include, but are not limited to gift cards, electronic equipment, sponsorship, dinners, golf games, coaches or trainers for athletic events, auction items, prizes, and clothing other than event promotional t-shirts.

Inspire donors to double their impact.

Never miss a matching gift opportunity.

Over 75% of eligible donors don’t know that they work for companies with matching gift programs. Even worse, just 7% of donors who work for matching gift companies successfully submit a matching gift request.

Your donors want to maximize their support, but they might not know yet that their donations can be doubled by their employers. Show them how by connecting them with matching gift tools from Double the Donation.
