A matching gift is a gift from a donor's employer that matches the donor's original gift. Most employers match dollar for dollar.
Ask your human resources staff, visit your company's intranet or click here to see which companies participate.
Those are available only from your employer. If it's not clear whom to ask at your company, talk to your human resources staff. Some companies have an online matching gifts program so you don't have to fill out a paper form.
Refer to the instructions on the matching gift form, but usually the next step is to mail or fax it to the Chapter (please include the participant's name):
National MS Society
900 S. Broadway, Ste 200
Denver, CO 80209
No, they are two separate gifts. Please enter only the donor's gift, then mail or electronically submit the matching gift form to us. We will enter the match.
Check the "My Progress" section of your Participant Center. Gifts labeled Unconfirmed have not been received by the Chapter yet. It may take months to receive payment for matching gifts depending on how frequently companies pay out charitable donations. You will receive credit for matching gifts for prize purposes as long as you have notified us that they are coming.
