Matching Gifts

Matching Your Gift Makes a World of Difference

Double the impact of your gift through your company’s matching gift program! Your matching gift may be designated to support urgent and critical needs Compassion’s children face that sponsorship donations alone can’t cover – needs like disaster relief, lack of clean water or extra medical bills. Matching gifts with no designation will be invested in our Where Most Needed Fund.

Your Match Matters words in blue

It's Easy to Participate. Just Three Simple Steps:

  1. Complete the Matching Gifts Form for your company (often available from the Human Resources department). This form may require Compassion’s tax identification number 36-2423707.
  2. Send the completed form along with your donation or receipt from your recent donation to:

    Compassion International
    Attn: Donor Processing
    12290 Voyager Parkway
    Colorado Springs, CO 80921
  3. We will complete our portion of the form and mail it back to your employer.

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

Matched Gifts Making a Difference: Hurricane Matthew Disaster Relief

Compassion’s staff in Haiti were quick to respond when Hurricane Matthew devastated much of that country in 2016, including several dozen Compassion child development centers. They deployed emergency teams to deliver supplies, food, water and hygiene kits, and assisted our church partners serving as temporary shelters. In times of disaster, children living in poverty are the most vulnerable. Compassion’s Disaster Relief Fund helps them recover physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Matched Gifts Making a Difference: Clean Water Initiative

In a small village in Northern Uganda, Evelyn and her daughter Betty rely on Compassion’s clean water interventions. Instead of walking more than three miles to find clean water or using contaminated water from a flooded well, this community of more than 200 caregivers now have access to fresh, clean, safe water. Compassion’s Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WaSH) program provides entire communities with water wells and rainwater storage systems, toilets and washrooms for children at Compassion centers, hygiene education, and safe water systems for use at home that remove harmful bacteria.
