Company Matching Programs

Company Matching Programs are a great way to help our your charity of choice. What happens is, you make a donation to a qualifying charity of your choice (they usually have to be a 501(c)(3) and proven to be legitimate). Then you contact the matching program at your company (often handled though a third party) and let them know you gave money. Usually they ask you to fill our a very brief form with the charity's Tax ID # and contact information. Then, the matching program confirms these details and perhaps other things, like mission statement etc. Once approved, the matching program provides a gift to match the one you gave, often at 100%! So if you give Austin Diaper Bank $150, your company's matching program can provide an additional $150, doubling your investment to give back to your community. It's one of those great employee benefits that you might not know about and is there for the asking. Check out your employer's matching grants program today!
