For the first annual Giving Tuesday, we'd like to engage in a little "donation orientation," starting with what's known as "Employer Matching." Many people don't realize that their company or employer has a policy to "match" the charitable donations of their employees, oftentimes doubling the impact of a donation with only a little bit of follow up. In fact, over 65% of Fortune 500 companies offer matching gift programs to their employees!
Even better news: online databases track matching policies for hundreds of organizations, and a simple search pulls up exactly what your company's policy is, and the (oftentimes painless) process to see it through.
We'll take you through our online widget that does just that, from our Donate Form page. What the process lacks in sexiness it more than makes up for with accessibility and impact!
