Your gift will have even a greater impact if your employer matches it. Many employers match cash and stock gifts made by their employees thereby doubling or even tripling the size of the overall contribution. Some companies even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. You can usually find out if your company offers a matching gift program by contacting either your human resources or community relations department.
If your company matches charitable gifts, simply request the appropriate form and mail it in with your gift, or after you have made your gift. Some companies also have matching giving forms online. Make your check payable to Lupus Foundation of America, Pacific Northwest Chapter. (The employer matching gift form can be mailed in separately if you wish to give online today).
Once we receive your matching gift form or online notification from your employer’s matching gift website, we will complete our part of the form and send it back to your company to complete the match.
If you have any questions about matching gifts, please contact our office at 1-877-774-2992.
