Other Ways to Give
Many employers sponsor matching gifts programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest! The impact of your gift may be doubled or possibly tripled. Check with your Human Resources department for inquiries about this opportunity or visit the matching gift registry.
