Multiply Your Gift Through Workplace Giving
Make your gift go further
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by an employee. If your company offers a matching gifts program your gift to SAGE could be doubled or even tripled and some companies even provide matching gifts for volunteer hours.
Before donating, take a moment to check to see if your company offers a matching gifts program. For more information, please visit our Matching Gifts page and simply type in your company's name.
How do I get my gift matched?
There are two main ways a company matches a gift: paper form or online. Each company has its own guidelines for employees, spouses, retirees, and widows/widowers. If your company is eligible, either go to your company’s matching gift website or request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. If you forgot to submit your matching gift with your donation, you can usually submit your request to your company up to one year after you made the original gift. Most corporate procedures are very simple:
- Request a Matching Form from your company.
- Complete and submit the form to SAGE along with your gift.
- SAGE will verify the completed form and return it to the company.
- The company issues a matching gift contribution to SAGE.
