Matching Gifts, Combining the Power of Individuals and Companies

Will your employer match your donation?

Many companies are proud to support non-profit organizations doing great work in our communities.  Employee matching gift programs are philanthropy programs designed to allocate corporate dollars to causes that their employees are passionate about.  Corporations do this by matching donations to worthy non-profits that their employees support.  Companies typically match donations dollar to dollar, effectively doubling an employee’s contribution! Even if you’ve retired, you may still be able to take advantage of these programs, donations from retirees and spouses often qualify for a match.

How does it work?

Requesting a matching gift is normally a five minute process which must be initiated by the donor.  You can do this by contacting your employer’s Human Resources or Community Giving department to see if your company has a matching gift program or a dollars for doers program (company matches time spent volunteering). Review the program guidelines to see whether Shadow Lake Association, Inc. is eligible. You then simply fill out and submit a paper match form provided by your employer or through an electronic submission process.  Mail the completed form to us, and we’ll take it from there.  Easy!
