Matching Gift
Many companies offer a matching gift program for their employees’ charitable contributions. Matching gifts are a great way to double or even triple your gift to BSF. To find out if your (or your spouse’s) employer participates in a matching gift program contact your human resources department. If they do, please complete their matching gift form and submit it according to your employers guidelines. You will be recognized for the full amount of your contribution plus the match.
