You can double or even triple the power of your contribution by asking your employer to match your gift!
More and more corporations of all sizes offer matching gift programs as a way to promote positive employee and public relations. Programs are designed to achieve a range of objectives and may include the opportunity for your company to match a variety of gifts you make to FIRST including cash, life insurance, stocks and securities, and more.
Simply check to see if your, or your spouse’s, employer matches gifts by contacting their Personnel or Human Resources departments. Did you know some companies even match contributions made by retirees?
Or, if you need help starting a matching gift program at your company, please contact us.
