Matching employee contributions to the American Cancer Society is an easy way to double your impact. However, many people don’t realize that their employers offer matching gifts. In some cases, you can double every lifesaving dollar you donate just by filling out a simple form. For instance, your $100 donation could be turned into a $200 contribution to the American Cancer Society when matched by your employer. Additionally, many companies will make a matching gift for employee volunteer time. Check with your human resources department to get the form or to determine if matching gifts are offered for volunteer time.
The American Cancer Society has a quick and easy tool to help you determine whether your employer offers a matching gifts program. Click here to search for your company, or call your human resources department directly. If your company does not currently match employee donations to the American Cancer Society, encourage your company to add this as an option to further your support to save lives and create a world with more birthdays.
