Does your employer match employee donations?
Many companies have programs through which they will match all or part of their employees’ donations to charitable organizations. These matches are often dollar for dollar so matching gifts are a great way to increase and even double your fundraising totals. These programs vary from employer to employer, so talk with your Human Resources Department. Remember to ask your donors and team members to check with their employers as well. Reminder: Matching gifts do not count toward a fundraising commitment until the matching check is received and processed by the Autism Society of Northwest Ohio So be sure to handle the matching gift process early and don’t forget to ask when the check will actually be written and mailed to Autism Society of Northwest .
