Many companies will match charitable contributions made by their employees, and may even match gifts made by retirees, board members and/or spouses. In most cases, companies match contributions dollar for dollar, but matches can vary. Check your company's matching guidelines. Employer matching gifts increase the impact of your personal support!
How do I get my employer to match my gift to WMS?
2. Once you know if your employer matches charitable donations, you must initiate the match. This usually means contacting your employer or former employer to obtain the proper form, completing the form and returning it to WMS as soon as possible.
3. WMS verifies that your contribution was received, and that it qualifies for a match. We will then send the form to your employer for verification. If all of your company's matching gift guidelines are met, they will issue the matching funds to WMS.
