YOUR donation can be doubled...will your employer match your gift?

What is a matching gift program? 

Matching gift programs are charitable giving programs set up by businesses and corporations in which the company matches donations made by employees to eligible non-profit organizations, in this case, Gearing Up! Matching gifts offer corporations a wonderful opportunity to join with their employees in a partnership which rewards, and is driven by, the employee’s generosity and greatly benefits the non-profit of choice.

How do I match my gift?

Matching gifts are a great way to double your donation to Gearing Up. Below are some details on how to find out if your employer will match your generous contribution. Most companies have websites on which employees can submit their matching gift, or an employee can print out a matching gift form that they complete and return directly to Gearing Up.

If your company is eligible, follow these easy steps to watch your impact double:

  1. Request a matching gift form from your employer or inquire about what website to visit in order to access the designated online forms. Usually, someone working in Human Resources will be your best point of contact for any questions about matching gift programs. 

  2. Send the completed and signed form to:

          Gearing Up c/o Lisa Shelby
          2401 Walnut Street
          Philadelphia, PA 19103

Gearing Up is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our federal tax ID number is 26-4679845.
