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.

Educate your donors about the matching gift process.

With Double the Donation’s tools, your nonprofit can connect donors with the information they need at every step in the process. Share submission instructions, program deadlines, online giving portals, and more.
