Matching Gift

Making a gift through your employer’s workplace giving campaign is a simple way to help vulnerable children and their families defeat hunger. Many companies will even match your donation, doubling or tripling the impact of your gift! This benefit is very fulfilling and you won’t even feel the pinch from your paycheck. Yet, at the end of the year, every penny is tax deductible and can make a big difference in your annual IRS tax filing.


Can my employer match my gift?

Your gift to Feed the Children could help twice as many hungry children. Currently, 23,000 employers offer matching gift programs that double or even triple charitable contributions made by their employees. Some companies even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses, too. And many employers also offer volunteer matching programs that match employee volunteerism with corporate donations!

For every dollar you give, you’re really giving two dollars.

To find out if your company matches gifts, use the convenient search tool below or ask your human resources or community relations department — they’ll be able to give you the details.
