Matching Gifts FAQ’s
What is a Matching Gift?
A matching gift is a charitable contribution made by a company in support of their employee’s philanthropic interests – usually at the same amount of the employee’s donation.
More than 17,000 companies will match tax-deductible charitable contributions made by their employees, retirees, and employee’s spouses dollar for dollar – which can double (or even triple) the value of your gift to UPMC Children’s Hospital Foundation!
How do I know if my (or my spouse’s) company matches gifts?
You can use our search tool to see if your company matches charitable gifts. If you do not see your company listed, reach out to your employee benefits/human resources department to see if they offer this program.
Who contacts my employer to match the gift?
You have to initiate the match through your company. Once you make your donation, contact your employer (or use our search tool) to find out next steps in making your impact go even further for our patients. Keep your donation receipt as you will need to give this to your employer.
Are Matching Gifts restricted?
Matching gifts are directed to the same fund designation as your original gift, unless your employer dictates otherwise.
Will I receive recognition for this match?
Donor will receive recognition for their own gift plus the value of the employer matching gift. Match recognition is given within the calendar year that it is received in-hand by Children’s Hospital. If gifts total more than $1,000, minus the costs of goods and services, donor will receive donor society recognition. For more information on our recognition societies, please click here.
