Matching Gifts

Did you know that more than 20,000 employers offer matching gift programs for their staff and even retirees? That means around 15 million individuals are eligible for their donations to be matched (or more!) by their employers.

Each year as much as $7 billion in matching gifts go unclaimed.

Hundreds of local employers, including Applied Materials, Gorton’s, General Electric, Raytheon, Eversource, National Grid, Smith and Nephew, and Pfizer offer matching gift programs.

Check out our database to see if you (or your spouse) could deepen your impact with a matched gift.
