Employee Directed Contribution Programs and Matching Gifts. Companies such as IBM and BMO Financial Group have integrated community giving and volunteerism into their corporate programs, encouraging employees to get involved directly in enhancing and supporting the communities in which they live and work. Other companies allow their employees to direct their charitable giving programs through matching gifts. When an employee notifies the company that he/she has made a charitable donation, the company will make a gift of the same amount, and in some cases double the amount, to the same charitable organization. Matching Gift Programs are a wonderful way for employees to make their charitable dollars stretch farther at no cost to themselves.
To find out whether your company has an Employee Giving or Matched Gift Program please check with your HR or payroll department.
