Matching Gifts

Double your impact! Do you want to double your donation to Project Grad 2018 without it coming out of your own pocket?

Many Austin companies offer a Matching Gifts or Corporate Match program, where your contribution to Project Grad 2018 is matched, dollar for dollar, by your corporation or its charitable foundation.

Matching Gifts programs are a great way for companies or foundations to help support their employees’ charities, while non-profit organizations like Project Grad 2018 get the benefit of a doubled donation.

Please Note: This list is not comprehensive. If your company is not listed here, you may still have a matching program. Please check with your company or foundation and email us to include your organization on our list.


The Matching Process

Every company or foundation handles their matching program differently.  Sometimes employees must fill out a company form and offer proof of the donation.  Others require a mini-grant application and more specific documentation from the charity.  Still others collect your contribution through periodic payroll deductions, and the total gift – including the corporate match – is sent directly to Project Grad 2018 by the company/foundation.

No matter the process, we are ready to help make things easy. 

1. Contact your company or foundation to determine their specific steps for matching
2. E
mail us if you need Project Grad 2018 to complete a form, send a letter, or assist with a grant application.
