Double Your Impact
Did you know many companies offer matching gift programs and volunteer grants to encourage philanthropy among their employees? And that some companies will even match to spouses and retirees? Through corporate giving programs, companies love to amplify their employee’s good deeds to qualifying nonprofit organizations, like Wheaton College!
WHAT ARE EMPLOYEE MATCHING PROGRAMS?
Employee matching gift programs are corporate giving programs in which the company matches donations made by employees, spouses of employees, and sometimes retirees to eligible nonprofit organizations. It’s an easy way to double your contribution to Wheaton!
WHAT ARE VOLUNTEER GRANT PROGRAMS?
Volunteer grant programs are corporate giving programs in which companies provide monetary donations to organizations where employees volunteer regularly. If you volunteer with us, it’s an easy way to provide Wheaton with additional financial support!
HOW DO I REQUEST A MATCHING GIFT OR VOLUNTEER GRANT?
Requesting a matching gift or volunteer grant is normally a five-minute process that the donor/volunteer must initiate.
