Frequently Asked Questions
What is a matching gift?
Employee matching gift programs are corporate giving programs that match your gift up to a certain amount. It’s a quick, easy way to double your contribution!
Example: You work for Boeing and donate $100 to KVC. Boeing’s matching gift policy has a minimum gift requirement of $25 and matches up to $10,000. After you submit your matching gift form, Boeing will write a check to KVC for $100.
Some companies also match gifts from employees’ spouses and retirees.
