What is a “Matching Gift”? Many companies sponsor matching gift programs to encourage employees to support numerous charities and non-profit organizations. Most companies match dollar for dollar and some may even double or triple match a donors’ gift.
Does your employer have a matching gift fund? If so, be sure to speak with them about matching your gift to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. To find out if your company offers matching gifts, you can also use our Employer Matching Gift Search.
