Employee Match Program FAQ’s

What is an Employee Match Program?
While the details of an Employee Match Program will vary from one company to another, the program encourages individual donations to eligible organizations by making a donation to the eligible organization in an amount that “matches” the employee’s contribution. This doubles an individual’s donation!

What is an eligible organization?
Non-profit organizations having 501(c)3 status.

Who can make donations?
Typically, certain employees of participating companies are eligible. There may be certain requirements, e.g., the employee must be a full-time employee. Again, details may vary depending upon the company.

Does my employer participate in an Employer Match Program?
The list below provides a partial list of companies that participate in Employee Match. Please note that this list is non-exhaustive. There are MANY other companies (large and small) that participate in this, so if in doubt, please ask your employer!

How much do I need to contribute?
Some organizations may require that a minimum donation (e.g., $25) be made by the employee, and may also set a cap on the amount of the donation. Check with your employer for specifics.
