How do I request a matching gift of volunteer grant?
Requesting a matching gift or volunteer grant is normally a five minute process which must be initiated by the donor / volunteer. You can do this by filling out and submitting a paper match form provided by your employer or through an electronic submission process.
- Log into your company’s matching gift submission website (if you use the Double the Donation search tool, you will receive a follow-up email linking to this page).
- Once logged in, search for the nonprofit that you donated to.
- Select the appropriate nonprofit from the search result. If it is not found, manually enter the organization’s details.
- Register the donation.
- Submit the completed matching gift request to your employer.
- Send your employers confirmation email to firstname.lastname@example.org
How long does it take for my matching gift to be processed?
It usually takes 3-4 months for companies to process matching gifts and deliver funds to 24 Foundation. Please send your matching gift confirmation to email@example.com so that we can credit the match as a pledge towards fundraising while we wait to receive the gift.
