Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift!
You Can Make a Matching Gift to Little Friends in Just Three Easy Steps:
1. Obtain a matching gift form and program guidelines from your human resources office.
2. Fill in the Employee section of the form and send it to Little Friends along with your donation or, if you've made your contribution online, simply complete the form and mail it to:
Attn: Workplace Giving Program
140 N. Wright Street
Naperville, IL 60540
3. Little Friends complete the form and forward it to your employer's matching gifts office for processing. Your company will send its matching donation directly to Little Friends.
Some companies disburse matching gifts on a quarterly or yearly schedule. Little Friends will send an acknowledgement letter to you when your matching contributions are received. If you ever have a question about your company's matching donation, please contact your human resources department.
