Amplify Your Impact

Matching Gift Opportunities

Through employer matching gift programs, companies will often match employee charitable gifts dollar-for-dollar, but some companies will give double or even triple the original donation amount.


“This generous award has provided me with the opportunity to reach my goal…Coming from a family where my parents work very hard, I am now relieved of the financial burden I would have had otherwise and can now focus my attention and energy on becoming a teacher.”  Morgan Gravatt
