Matching Gifts
Increase your giving power!

Many businesses and companies, whether big or small, have programs set up that encourage their employees to give money to nonprofit organizations. Typically, if a company has a matching gifts program, for every dollar an employee donates to a charity, the company also donates a dollar to the same organization. Some employers choose to double -- or even triple -- match their employees' donations.

Are you retired? You may still be eligible to participate through your former employer's program.

If you volunteer with Compassion, your employer may also provide us with a Volunteer Grant.
