How Do Matching Gifts Help?

How Do Matching Gifts Help?

In 2012, World Vision was humbled to receive more than $9.2 million in financial support from more than 200 companies, including cash grants, cause-marketing proceeds, team-building activities, and workplace giving and matching gifts, which helped in relief, development, and advocacy work around the world.

Your donations help bring emergency relief, clean water, food supplies, and much more to the world’s poorest communities.

Employers can double that impact by matching your gift!

Many companies also match volunteer hours or gifts from spouses, retirees, and board members!

What if My Company Doesn’t Match?

If your company does not currently match employee donations, it doesn’t hurt to ask. It might just inspire your employer to make a difference. By supporting employees’ generosity, your employer can double the impact of your donations.
