Matching Gifts Maximize Gifts
Many employers offer this tremendous charitable gift program!
We are grateful for donor support of our worldwide educational programs that give more than 100,000 disadvantaged individuals the keys to advancement. Our ORT America legacy includes a history of helping individuals go from education to vocation to become self-sufficient, and more than a century of educational achievements.
There is a lot of potential to maximize charitable donations for the benefit of others. Have you considered an employer-sponsored matching gift? You may not be aware of the fact that many companies offer this option, where your employer may make an equivalent donation to a cause you contribute to – in essence, doubling your gift. Imagine! For example, your $500 contribution could become $1,000 credited to you.
Criteria for matching gift contributions vary. Here are a few ways to find out whether your company provides matching gifts:
- Make an inquiry with the human resources department where you are employed;
- Simply google >COMPANY NAME matching gifts< and see whether a form is provided. If so, please complete it and send it to us (or complete it online and your company will send it to us):
