Matching Makes a Difference
Many companies encourage employees to support local nonprofits and education institutions. Did you know that many will also financially match those efforts? Those opportunities can come in the form of employee matching gifts and volunteer support programs.
For example, Wells Fargo, IBM, and Verizon provide 1:1 matching for their employees’ charitable giving, up to a certain annual amount. Other companies, such as 3M and Allina Health, provide a monetary contribution to an organization at which an employee volunteers.
Check with your employer to see what opportunities you may have. You can also contact Kristin Matzke, firstname.lastname@example.org or 507.233.8662, for more information about workplace giving.
Other Ways to Donate
You can designate a gift to a specific project, department, or event. Another option is non-cash giving, such as in-kind donations and deferred giving. Please contact Kristin Matzke, email@example.com or 507.233.8662.
