Corporate matching gift programs provide an easy way for donors to double and even triple or quadruple their gift to their favorite charity!  The impact of these corporate matching programs can be substantial, and that means exponentially greater impact for the children with serious illnesses we serve and their families.

Here’s how to find out if your employer matches charitable donations. 

 

Double Your Impact

Most employee matching gift programs offer a match of 1:1. This means if you donate $100 to your charity, so will your employer— creating a $200 gift that means twice the impact on SeriousFun camp sustainability!

Many programs offer even more of a match.  For example, Johnson & Johnson offers triple donations with a 2:1 match for current employees while also doubling donations (a 1:1 match) for retirees.  Bank of America matches donations 1:1 up to $5,000 annually per employee, and Home Depot matches donations 1:1 up to $3,000 annually per employee.

 

Search For Your Employer  

We’ve made it fast and easy for you to find out if your employer offers a matching gift program: simply type your employer’s name into the SeriousFun matching gift search tool and instantly learn what, if any, match is offered, the match ratio, and any other rules and forms you will need to fill out to get your donation matched. The process is painless and can be completed within minutes.

 

Put Free Money to Good Use

Every year, millions of dollars of unused matching giving revenue by employers goes unused. That’s money that could be going to the causes you care about most. For SeriousFun camps, that could mean more children with serious illness being able to experience the life-changing power of camp.
