Companies Support Matching Gift Programs. Does Yours?

There are hundreds of companies that will match employee donations. Check with your HR Department to find out if your company has a Matching Gift Program and ask for the company form. Fax or email the form to LFA-Texas Gulf Coast Chapter and our Matching Gift coordinator will verify your donation. All Walk to END Lupus Now matching gifts will be applied to designated team or individual fundraising page.
