Matching Gifts FAQs

A matching gift is a charitable donation by a corporation that matches an employee’s donation to an eligible nonprofit organization, most often dollar for dollar. Thousands of companies across the United States (and some companies internationally) offer matching gift programs to their employees as part of a corporate giving philanthropy. This means millions of individuals are eligible to participate in a matching gift program. In addition, 65% of Fortune 500 companies offer a matching gift program, and some companies even double, triple, or quadruple donations!

The main concept of matching gift programs is quite simple. A $100 donation to OAR may be eligible to be matched by a corporate employer, literally doubling the donation for a total of $200. The employer will validate that the original donation is eligible to be matched according to internal guidelines and will send a donation of the same value (or higher, depending on the parameters of the program) to OAR.

Details regarding the company’s matching gifts and volunteer programs (if applicable) will appear with specific instructions for submitting matching gift requests to that company. If a specific company does not appear, this does not necessarily mean that the company does not offer matching gifts.

Yes. Matching donations to any donations made towards a fundraising campaign will be credited towards that fundraiser’s total.  The timing of when matching gifts are credited towards a fundraising campaign vary.  If you believe a matching gift is missing from your fundraising campaign total, please email and include the donor and company names.
