EMPLOYER MATCHING GIFT PROGRAMS

Many businesses including corporations sponsor employer matching gift programs. Such programs can double any charitable donation you or your spouse gives to Friends of SCPA on behalf of the school.

Q: What is an employer matching gift program?
A: An employer matching program is a set of rules and guidelines that employers establish to match an employee's contribution, donation or gift to a charitable organization. Contact your company's Human Resources department to determine if your employer (or your spouse's employer) has an employer matching gift or contribution program. Your company will have full information on matching gift eligibility and program criteria.
 
Q: Which employers match charitable donations?
A: Information changes and so we encourage you to check with your Human Resources department to confirm whether or not your employer matches charitable donations. Below is a link to search business and corporations with matching gift programs as a guide. The presence of a company's name is not a guarantee that the matching policy is currently active.

Q: Does Friends of SCPA qualify as a charitable organization for employer matching contribution programs?
A: The Friends of SCPA is a qualified nonprofit IRC 501(c)(3) corporation and is considered a charitable organization. Employer matching programs are designed by an employer's administration. Guidelines and rules vary among corporations and businesses. Please check with your employer's Human Resources department for instructions, guidelines and forms.
