How do matching gifts work?

Modified on Thu, 15 Jun 2023 at 02:58 PM

Employee matching gift programs are corporate giving programs where an employer matches donations made by their employees to eligible nonprofit organizations, including South Florida PBS. It's an easy way to double (or sometimes even triple!) your donation at no cost to you. 

Each company sets its own requirements. Some companies will match gifts even if the employee has retired, and some companies will match gifts made by the spouse of an employee. Many companies allow employees to submit matching gift requests for one year following the date of the donation. 

Requesting a matching gift is a process that must be initiated by the donor. To find out whether your employer has a matching gift program and what the requirements are, you can search our database here

If you have checked the search page and don't find your employer listed, it's still possible that your employer will match your donation. Please check with your company's HR manager and ask if your donation can be matched. 

  • For questions regarding your company's program policies, please contact your employer's HR department. The necessary information may also be available on your company’s intranet.
