  1. What can I do to maximize the benefits of my employer’s Matching Gifts program?
  • Many companies have certain requirements for matching their employees’ gifts. For instance, some companies will only match donations that meet a certain one-time minimum dollar amount, such as $25, $50 or $100. In these instances, a donor is better off giving an amount that meets the minimum dollar amount once rather than giving a lesser amount on several different occasions.
