Matching Gifts

Double your impact!


What are matching gifts?

Matching gifts are cash donations made by your employer or your spouse’s employer that are often equal in value of your initial gift. Thousands of companies have Matching Gift Programs that will DOUBLE individual tax-deductible contributions made by their employees.

What are Dollars-for-Doers or Volunteering Programs?

Many companies will also match, in dollars, any voluntary hours you give to ECYS. Please ask your Human Resources department if they have the volunteering or dollars-for-doers programs.

Why apply for matching gifts?

It is an easy way to increase the impact of your ECYS donations. You will receive credit for the entire gift, both your contribution and the company match.

How do I know if my company has a matching gift program?

The procedure for each company is different. Please check with your Human Resources department to find out about your company's program.

How do I process the matching forms and who do I send it to?

Your company will give you a matching gift form that you can fill out and send to ECYS office with your contribution (check or online donation). ECYS will process the matching gift form and send it back to the company.


What if my company doesn't use forms?

Many Bay Area companies no longer process paperwork. Usually they have their employees request matching gifts through their internal websites. Please contact your HR office for more information.
