Employer Matching Gifts

Many employers offer matching gift programs that match the charitable contributions made by their employees. In a time when hungry people need our help more than ever, you can double or even triple the impact of your donation!

How to Get Your Gift Matched

» See how your employer matches gifts.  Your employer’s matching gift policies may be found in our matching gift database (this link goes to a different part of our website) or by checking with your Human Resources department.  Note: some employers also match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses, as well as volunteer hours.
» Complete your employer’s matching gift form.  If your employer is eligible, request a matching gift form   from your employer, then turn the completed form in at The Walk for Hunger or mail to:

Project Bread The Walk for Hunger
