Frequently Asked Questions

What is a matching gift?

Employee matching gift programs are corporate giving programs.

Here’s an example. Let’s say you work for Walgreens and donate $100 to Orchard Village. Walgreens’ matching gift policy has a minimum gift requirement of $25 and matches at a 1:1 ratio. After you submit your matching gift form, Walgreens will double your donation by writing a check for $100. Gifts from employees’ spouses and retirees may also qualify for a match.

It’s a quick and easy way to double your contribution! Use the search tool above to see if your company will match your gift and find everything you need to apply.

How do I request a matching gift?
