Matching Gift Tips:

  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.
  5. Every non-profit 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. Non-profits should build strong connections with these companies that offer support.
