Matching Gifts & Volunteer Incentive Programs


Many companies offer incentive programs for employees who provide financial support or volunteer time to non-profit organizations. A Matching Gift Program allows the company to match an employee's contribution to a non-profit organization. A Volunteer Incentive Program allows the company to make a contribution to an organization of the employee's choice in exchange for volunteer time at the organization.

If you work for a company that offers one or both of these programs and they are not listed here, please let us know so we can get them added. Visit our contact us page for more information.
