Matching Gifts

Many companies provide matching gifts for their employees as a benefit of their employment. Matching gifts are an excellent way to double and sometimes triple the impact of your personal donation. If you are going to make a gift to the Diocesan Services Appeal, please check with your employer or HR department to see if they have a matching gift program.

You can check the name of the company you work for here, on Charity Navigator:

Not all companies provide matching gifts and some may only give to specific charities.
