What is a company matching donation?
A corporate matching donation, or matching gift, is when a person makes a donation to a non-profit organization and their employer donates an additional amount, often equal or greater than the employee's donation. A matching gift is a great way for a donor to increase their contribution to Houston Public Media!
How do I find out if my employer offers a matching gift program?
Search for your company in the search box above. If you don’t see it, ask your HR representative if your company has a matching program. If they don't yet have one, please ask them to consider starting one.
How do I apply for a matching gift?
If your company name appears in the search results above, select it for application information. If no online application form is provided, ask your HR representative for the form.
I’m a sustainer, or I give monthly. Can I still have my donations matched?
Sure! Most businesses have you submit your yearly total to match, but please consult with your HR representative. We do send our sustainers and monthly donors an annual donation summary at the end of January for tax purposes; this is also a handy list to submit for a match.
What if I made a donation recently but didn’t apply for a matching gift at the time?
Many employers will still match your gift after it’s made; ask them about their requirements.
I didn’t find my company on the search page. Now what?
It’s still possible that your employer will match your donation, even if you don’t find your company on our list. Check with your company’s HR manager and ask if your donation can be matched.
