4aGoodCause and Double the Donation have teamed up to help your online donors acquire matching gifts from their employers.
How it Works
4aGoodCause clients can integrate Double the Donation’s search tool directly on the thank you pages of their fundraising campaigns. Donors can then lookup company specific matching gift information right after donating. After the donor makes their gift the website will prompt them to “See if your employer will match your donation!”
Why Matching Gifts Matter
Though $2 to $3 billion is donated through matching gift programs every year, only about 1 in 10 eligible donors match their donations.
Every year, about $6 to $10 billion of matched donations is left unclaimed. Since many companies may match up to $10,000 for every donation, the revenue adds up quickly.
Raise awareness and make it easy for your donors to submit matching gifts using this new integration with Double the Donation.
