Many employers have a workplace giving campaign and/or matching gift program. Both initiatives are great ways to fund research and help people with lupus and their families.
Employer Matching Gifts
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. Companies use various methods by which employees can request matching gifts – online forms, automated phone systems or paper forms completed by the charitable cause. Contact your company’s human resources officer to discover your options. If your company matches you may be able to access the forms directly through the search below. Follow the set procedure for your company, and once matching gift notification is received by our office The Lupus Foundation of America, North Carolina Chapter will be happy to assist from there. The impact of your gift may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
