Maximize Your Donation
Does doubling or tripling the impact of your donation to ZERO — at no cost to you — sound appealing? ZERO’s Matching Gifts Program is a great way to do just that. If your employer participates in a matching gift program, your company will match the contributions that you donate to a charitable organization. Some companies even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
Find out if your company has a matching gift policy by looking up your organization in the look up feature below or by asking your HR Department or Community Giving Department.
What To Do:
Follow the instructions outline after you looked up your organization
Get a Matching Gift form from your employer, fill out your portion, and mail it in the reply envelope with your donation. If you’ve already sent in your donation or made your donation online, mail the Matching Gift form to:
Matching Gift Coordinator
ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer
515 King Street, Suite 420
Alexandria, VA 22314
Or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
More and more companies offer online Matching Gift processing, so no form is required just let them know you donated to us, and they take care of the rest. Some companies even offer donation via payroll deduction, so we receive your donation and their matching gift in one lump sum.
The advantages of using matching gifts:
- You can double the amount of money you turn in and qualify for larger incentives.
- Those individuals who support you can take advantage of it as well, increasing your funds raised.
- ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer will be able to save lives and stop pain and suffering by advancing research, encouraging action, and providing education and support to men and their families with the funds raised from matching gifts, aiding us in our mission to end prostate cancer.
