At Double the Donation, we partner with nonprofits across the country to help them increase their revenue through corporate matching gift programs and volunteer grants. We frequently receive requests from nonprofits asking for information on companies local to their area that offer such programs.
Today, we’re examining the largest city in Maryland– Baltimore– and the matching gift opportunities it holds. We’ve pulled together a shortlist of the city’s top opportunities, and are going to detail the programs of the following companies:
- Black & Decker
- Lockheed Martin
- T. Rowe Price
The above list is by no means comprehensive, and if you have a large donor base in the Baltimore area, consider doing some outside research on the city’s top programs. The best way to do this is by using a dedicated matching gift tool– read on to learn more!
Using Matching Gift Tools
Dedicated matching gift tools can improve the solicitation processes for both small and large nonprofits alike. Whether you’re just building your matching gift discovery procedures, or improving your existing processes, these tools can aid in the process.
For example, smaller nonprofits just entering the world of matching gifts can benefit from using Double the Donation’s Premium Plan. Embed this comprehensive database directly on your website and online giving page and enable donors to search their own gift match eligibility.
However, on the other hand, nonprofits that are more experienced in matching gift solicitation will benefit more from a tool like 360MatchPro. With this tool, a donor’s match eligibility is automatically searched upon their donation. Further, as the software is fully automated, the communications following the discovery of eligibility are handled for you as well.
Sign up for a 14-day free trial of Double the Donation’s services if either of these solutions seem like the right fit for your organization. With that, continue reading for a look at corporate philanthropy in Baltimore.
