Most people love a good cause and want to give back to their community. This is usually achieved through giving a monetary donation. The impact of this kind of gift can go even farther and accomplish even more through a company match program. Companies financially match donations their employees make to nonprofit organizations as part of their corporate philanthropy. When an employee makes a donation, they’ll request the matching gift from their employer, who then makes their own donation. This raises the value to double, triple or more than the employee’s original contribution, increasing the impact.
Request a corporate match
When you request a corporate match on your donation, everyone wins. Non-profit organizations, such as Outlook Enrichment, will receive two donations for the work of one. You, as a donor, will love knowing your gifts went twice as far. Lastly, your company will fulfill their corporate social responsibility goals by contributing to and engaging with non-profits.
Working for a socially responsible employer boosts company morale, productivity and connection with the community at large. Employers providing an opportunity for a company match increase contribution and encourage employees to exceed their company’s philanthropic objectives while giving more dollars to their favorite charities. When your employer pledges to match your donation, it improves their reputation and corporate citizenship.
Reach out to your human resources department to initiate the employer match process. They will provide additional information, resources and documentation to fill out.
