Employee matching gifts instructions

Donations to DonorsChoose.org usually do qualify for employee matching programs, but corporate policies vary (find yours).

After making a donation, donors will need to forward their employer’s matching gift request form to us. Forms can be emailed or mailed.

Email: matchinggifts[AT]donorschoose[DOT]org (This email is for submitting forms only. If you have a question, use the contact form.)

Mail:

ATTN: Matching Gifts
134 West 37th Street, 11th Floor
New York, NY 10018

Once the match is approved and we receive a check from the employer, we'll create a gift card in the donor's name and send it to them via email. This way each donor gets to choose exactly where the company match will go as well.

Because most employers issue checks on a quarterly basis, it may take a few weeks or months for each donor to receive his or her DonorsChoose.org gift card.
