Transitioning to 360MatchPro by Double the Donation | Grow Matching Gifts
At Double the Donation, we firmly believe in the power of evolution. Our commitment to improving our offerings and ensuring they align with advancements in the industry—and, more importantly, with the needs of our clients—has always been at the forefront of our operations.
In 2021, we made a significant change by retiring Double the Donation’s Legacy Basic and Premium Plans. These solutions were first introduced over a decade ago, and were, at the time, examples of groundbreaking matching gift technology. In the years following, however, we’ve continued to advance our software with a desire to focus on developing our most streamlined and effective platform: 360MatchPro.
Since the decision to discontinue the Legacy Plans was made in 2021, we’ve ceased selling subscriptions for new customers—while allowing existing clients to continue their services uninterrupted. Today, we’re thrilled to announce that all subscriptions, upon renewal, will transition to our new and improved offering, 360MatchPro by Double the Donation.

Not to mention, additional differences between the two subscription plans include…
Matching Gift Functionality Directly Within the Donation Process
Instead of taking a passive approach to matching gift promotions, such as with the Legacy Plan, transitioning to 360MatchPro allows organizations to integrate gift-matching directly within the donation experience itself.
To do so, the automation system empowers fundraisers to —
|1. Collect donor employment information within the donation form with an embedded company search tool.
Bonus: Donors who know their gifts will be matched are more likely to increase the size of their contribution—resulting in a 51% increase in average gift amount when matching gifts are mentioned.
|2. Provide employer-specific matching gift guidelines and forms from our comprehensive matching gift database directly on the donation thank-you screen.
This catches donors at their highest level of engagement where they’re most likely to pursue actionable next steps outlined on the page.
This strategy makes the most of donor engagement at its highest level—while individuals are actively giving to support your cause. This essentially transforms matching gifts into a direct extension of the initial donation experience. And more donors are likely to take part when it is!
Automated and Customized Follow-Up Emails
Based on the information collected during the giving process, 360MatchPro automatically triages donors based on likely match eligibility and triggers targeted follow-ups accordingly.
These post-transaction email communications provide personalized program details and next steps. This often includes minimum and maximum donation amounts, qualifying nonprofits and employees, submission deadlines, direct links to online request forms, and more.
Here’s an example of what an organization’s match emails might look like:
Automated matching gift outreach is a great way to remind donors of their match eligibility, encourage them to take the next steps, and guide them through the process. Not to mention, it provides an easy way for donors to update their request status so your team can better track matches to completion and more accurately forecast incoming revenue.
80+ Fundraising Software Integrations
Another fundamental advantage of transitioning to 360MatchPro is that it integrates directly with nearly all of the most popular donation tools, CRMs, and peer-to-peer fundraising platforms out there. This makes it easier than ever for nonprofits and educational institutions to incorporate matching gifts in every phase of the fundraising process.
And if we don’t already integrate with your favorite giving solution? Don’t worry—we’re developing new partnerships every day. Not to mention, there’s still a lot you can do by transitioning to 360MatchPro, even without a native integration with your fundraising software.
Exclusive Matching Gift Auto-Submission Functionality
If your team is looking for innovative ways to streamline the matching gift experience for your donors, auto-submission is the new feature you’re looking for.
By enabling matching gift auto-submission functionality, exclusively available through Double the Donation’s 360MatchPro in partnership with corporate giving software providers, matching has never been easier.
Now, donors employed by select participating companies can submit their matching gifts directly from their favorite organizations’ confirmation screens. From there, 360MatchPro handles the documentation behind the scenes, providing companies with the information they need to review, approve, and pay out match requests.
This breakthrough process removes some of the most common roadblocks to matching gift completion, making corporate matching more accessible than ever before. Your donors will thank you, and you’ll have the additional match revenue to back it up, particularly as we continue to roll out the functionality for more donors and employers.
More In-Depth Data Reporting
Though the Legacy Plan provides access to birds-eye view statistics, such as the top companies searched in an organization’s matching gift plugin, transitioning to 360MatchPro brings the scope of matching gift data reporting to a new, comprehensive level.
Pictured in a sample dashboard below, 360MatchPro empowers fundraisers with smart insights into their current matching gift efforts as well as lucrative opportunities for expanding initiatives.
This 360-degree view includes analytics such as:
- Total revenue, number, and percentage of donations marked as match-eligible
- Total revenue, number, and percentage of matching gifts submitted
- Total revenue, number, and percentage of verified matches received
- Email delivery, open, and click rates
Benefits of 360MatchPro: Impact + Value
In the realm of matching gift automation, 360MatchPro has already made waves. Over 90% of active Double the Donation clients are now using 360MatchPro over our legacy plans.
These organizations’ successes have been extraordinary, identifying over 300 million dollars in matching gifts in just the last 12 months. And that figure continues to grow more than 50% year-over-year!
Over time, it’s become evident that transitioning to 360MatchPro is more than an upgrade. It’s an opportunity to employ a transformative tool for nonprofits and education causes looking to implement effective matching gift fundraising with ease.
The overall benefits it offers are multi-faceted, and include (but are certainly not limited to) the following…
