One of the easiest ways to increase your gift to The Fisher Center Foundation is through your employer’s Matching Gift program. Thousands of companies, including corporations, foundations, not-for-profit organizations, and associations, match their employees’ charitable contributions—sometimes for as much as double the amount of the initial gift.
Companies have various methods for matching gift request submissions: online forms, automated phone systems, or a paper form that you submit to The Fisher Center Foundation. Many companies will match personal gifts, such as cash, stocks, marketable securities, and the value of your volunteer time. Companies may also match gifts from employee spouses, retirees, and board members.
Here’s how to take part:
- Contact your employer’s Human Resources office to determine if your company matches employee donations. If your company does not currently match employee donations, you might suggest they consider doing so.
- Obtain a Matching Gift form and review the program guidelines to ensure that The Fisher Center Foundation is eligible to receive matching gifts. Conditions and criteria for gift matching vary by employer.
- Complete the donor section of the form and submit it, along with your check or credit card authorization, to:
