Philanthropic Topics: Matching Gifts

Matching Gifts are an amazing way to make sure your donation to Rebuilding Together Twin Cities goes even further. Many companies throughout the state have matching gift programs as part of their corporate social responsibility initiatives. Every company will do things a bit different, but here are some things to think about if you want to see if you can double, or triple your gift.

How to double your money! Its as easy as 1, 2, 3 …

1. Make a Donation to Rebuilding Together Twin Cities, any amount, any frequency! Many companies will honor a gift made within the last 12 months.

2. Ask your boss, or talk to your HR department and see if your company has a matching gift program. They will direct you to a form that needs to be filled out in order for your match to be recognized.

3. Submit your form to the appropriate party and feel amazing knowing that your donation will go twice as far to support affordable housing in our community!
