Matching Gifts

Looking for a way to grow your contribution without actually giving more? The solution may be simpler than you think.
Many companies have matching gift programs, meaning they match (or even triple) their employees’ contributions to qualifying charitable organizations. Many employers will often make a monetary donation for each volunteer hour the employee gives to the community.
To find out if your company runs a matching gift program, ask your company’s HR department. Then get a matching gift form from your company, complete it, and mail it to:
9575 Katy Freeway, Suite 428
Houston, TX 77024
