Matching Gifts: The Definitive Guide for Employers

Everything You Need to Know to Match Employee Donations


A successful matching gift program can help your company attract and retain employees, showcase your corporate values, enhance your employees’ experience, and — most importantly — make a difference.

But while workers clearly value matching gift programs, a surprising number of companies have yet to join the party. Research by America’s Charities shows that fewer than 3 in 10 small and mid-sized companies match — and more than 1 in 3 large firms are not yet offering these programs. 

Thankfully, it’s not too late — nor is it too difficult — to add a matching program to your company’s workplace giving menu.

This guide will:

  • Explain what a matching gift program is,
  • Highlight the benefits and value of matching employee donations, 
  • Detail how to set up a matching gift program, including five key things you need to consider before getting started, and
  • Offer real examples of matching gift programs and advice from America’s Charities’ team of experts.
