More than 20,000 employers across the U.S. have active programs where they match contributions made by their employees to charities, one-to-one. So when the employee gives $100, the employer will match it by giving $100 — the charity receives $200. Like magic!
- Some employers will do two-to-one or even more.
- And some match contributions by former employees.
Does your employer (or former employer) provide a match?
You can easily check through the free online search engine made available by Chadwick School, a K-12 independent, college preparatory day school located on the Palos Verdes Peninsula.
If there is a match, the search results will provide details on how you can make the magic happen. And Caring House will be glad to be your magician’s assistant.
