COMPANY MATCHING GIFT OPPORTUNITIES
Make a matching gift through your employer to double, or even triple, the impact of your gift!
Did you know many employers sponsor matching gift programs to match charitable contributions made by their employees?
What can qualify for an employer matching gift?
Each company has its own guidelines. Typically, the following donations may be matched by an employer:
Gifts made by employees of the company
Gifts from the spouses of company employees
Gifts made by retirees of the company
How do matching gifts work?
Donors apply for a matched gift directly through their company, usually by completing an online application form. Once your company has approved your application, they make the gift to the Hopkinton Parent Teacher Organization directly on your behalf.
Different companies will have different deadlines. They usually operate on a quarterly or end of financial year basis. You might need to apply to your employer for a matching gift within a certain time following your donation to the Hopkinton Parent Teacher Organization.
Here are a few local companies that offer employee matching gifts: Fidelity, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Thomas Reuters, State Street Corporation, General Electric.
