Boston is not just the home of top universities, rich history and winning sports teams, it is the home to many companies that offer generous matching gift programs. Learning more about these companies and their employee gift giving programs is critical for nonprofits to increase matching gift revenue.

Below is a sample of some of the top employers in the Boston area that offer generous matching gift programs. Donors who work for these and other companies can double – or even triple – their contributions to your nonprofit! 

 

Matching Gift Tip:

Every nonprofit should determine the 10-20 largest matching gift eligible employers in their geographic area. Share this information with everyone involved in fundraising efforts so they are familiar with these employers. Nonprofits should build strong connections with these companies that offer support. Typically, the company will have a staff person who is responsible for corporate philanthropy. Contact this person and arrange a meeting to discuss the mission of your nonprofit, and how you can further engage the company. Companies may have corporate giving days, volunteer days during which they pay their employees to work at your nonprofit and other fundraising opportunities.
