A matching gift is a simple way to double your donation—and your impact!
Many employers in the area offer matching gift programs to their current and retired employees.
This includes Adobe, AMD, Andreessen Horowitz, Apple, Genentech, Google, HP, IBM, Intuit, Microsoft, The Capital Group Companies, Wachovia, and many others.
There are two common ways that companies match employee contributions:
- Donation Match: When an employee donates to a nonprofit like Canopy, the company matches their employee’s donation , often dollar-for-dollar, up to a certain amount.
- Volunteer Hours Match: Some companies (like Adobe) offer matching gifts when employees volunteer. For example, for every hour that you volunteer with Canopy, your company may donate a certain dollar amount.
Ask your employer today whether they offer a matching gift program. You might just double your impact!
