Matching Gifts

Double the impact of your donation with a matching gift!

Did you know many companies offer a matching gift program to encourage philanthropy among their employees?  And that some companies will even match to spouses and retirees?

By simply completing a matching gift form (on-line or paper), you may be able to double, or even triple, the impact of your gift!  Contributions of any amount help us do more to help our neighbors in need!

If you are employed by one of the more than 900 companies across the country which match their employees’ contributions to non-profit organizations, your gift could double in value.

Participating in your company’s Matching Gift program is very simple.

  1. Contact your Human Resources Office for eligibility requirements and to obtain a Matching Gift form or search online.                                                                                                                              (Remember, many companies also match the gifts of retirees, spouses, surviving spouses, and outside directors.)
  2. Fill out the employee portion of the form completely.
  3. Send the form to:    Greensboro Urban Ministry
    Attn: Development Department
    305 West Gate City Blvd
    Greensboro NC 27406
