Matching Gift Programs

Matching Gifts provide you with an easy way to potentially double your gift to the ARLGP. Many local and national companies supplement their employees’ contributions to nonprofit organizations (specifications of the match vary based upon each employer’s program). Your company, your spouses’ company, or even a company you are retired from may match your gift. When you make a donation through our various giving options above, be sure to enter your employer’s info in the “Double Your Donation” box to see if they encourage and support your donation to your charity of choice.

If your company’s information did not appear, your employer may still have a matching gift program or may be interested in creating one. Please contact your HR department to find out if your gift to the ARLGP can be matched.
