Charlotte is the largest city in North Carolina, and home to many matching gift companies. Did you know that each year, $10 billion of corporate matching gift money goes unclaimed, which represents about $20 billion to non-profits? (Source: Ryan Scott, 2015 America’s Charities Membership Assembly)

Four Matching Gift Tips You Can Implement in 30 minutes or less:

  1. Add E-Match Donor Link to your web site
  2. Promote matching gifts via twitter. Sample tweet: Want to double or maybe even triple your donation? Check to see if your employer will match your donation (Insert your HEP E-Match link).
  3. Add a reminder about the potential of matching gifts in your email signature
  4. Check with your Board Members to see if they work for a matching gift company. They are great stewards for your organization so you need to know if they are matching gift eligible.
