    Matching Donations-Double your Gift to Gilda’s Club

    Many companies in West Michigan give employees and retirees the chance to increase their personal gifts to non-profit organizations by matching the gift with company funds or corporate foundations. These funds may double or even triple your own gift! (Please note: matching gift policies vary.)

    Click HERE for a list of some matching gift companies. Even if your company is not on this list, it may still offer matching donations. Your personnel or human resources department should be able to tell you if your company offers this type of program and what the guidelines are. They will also provide you with the appropriate forms.

    Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. All donations are tax deductible within the extent of the law.
