Welcome to our Matching Gift and Volunteer Grant Resource Page

At Seed Savers Exchange, we conserve and promote America's culturally diverse but endangered garden and food crop heritage for future generations by collecting, growing, and sharing heirloom seeds and plants. An easy way to double your contribution is through employee giving programs.

Many corporations match employee donations (or the tax deductible component of your membership) to our organization. (If you don't see your employer here, you may want to inquire directly with your employer. Not all employers are in this database.)

If you volunteer with us, your employer may also provide us with a grant as a way to recognize your ongoing support. 

Thanks for checking to see if your company offers these programs!
