Match Giving

Many companies encourage their employees to donate to their favorite charities by matching their contributions, often dollar-for-dollar. Gifts from employees’ spouses and retirees may also qualify for a match. (Click the Learn More Tab to see if your company participates in a matching gift program.) And if you volunteer at the JMN Foundation, your company also may offer a volunteer grant program.


Some matching programs will allow for up to one year after you’ve made your donation to request a corporate match, so save your tax receipt. To find out if your company matches, contact the appropriate department and they can give you the specific details on your company’s process.


Matching gifts and volunteer grants are an important source of revenue for the on-going operation of the JMN Foundation and its programs. Thanks for checking to see if your employer offers these programs!


For questions or more information, contact [email protected] or 314-814-6285.
