Getting your Donations Matched by your Employer
If you don’t know if your company will match your donation there are a couple ways to find out:
• Ask the human resources or community relations department at your company. They can let you know the company’s policy on matching charitable donations of employees and what needs to be done to ensure your gift is matched. Some companies even match gifts by retirees and/or spouses, so be sure to ask that as well.
• Visit http://www.cstx.wish.org/ways-to-help/giving/matching-gifts to check to see what your company’s policy is for matching an employee’s charitable donation. If you do not find your employer in this search, please contact your human resources or community relations department to see if you can establish a matching gifts program with Make-A-Wish.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO IF MY EMPLOYER MATCHES DONATIONS?
If your company matches employee donations, you may be required to complete a paper or online form and submit it to your employer so that they can verify your donation has been made to Make-A-Wish. Your employer then notifies Make-A-Wish directly to confirm your donation. You don’t need to do anything else.
In some cases, you may need to submit the matching gift form directly to Make-A-Wish.
Any matching gift paperwork that needs to be mailed to Make-A-Wish should be sent to the address below.
