Employee Matching Gifts
There’s a GREAT chance you work for a company that matches your charitable contributions
AND for the hours you spend volunteering at school. Both of these are wonderful opportunities to both support not only your own child but the rest of the Guadalupe family.
These are both very EASY and FREE ways to support Guadalupe so this is a win-win situation!
Employee Matching Gifts are donations an employer makes to match its employees’ charitable
contributions. Employee matching gifts often are dollar-for- dollar, but some companies will give double or even triple the original donation.
Volunteer Support Programs – sometimes called “Dollars for Doers” – can take various forms.
Also known as individual volunteer grants, these programs essentially reward employees who
take time to donate their time to Guadalupe & the GHSC.
Guidelines and amounts vary with each company. Typically, individuals must submit forms to
their employers. They usually can get more information about their matching gift benefits from their human resources department.
If you still have questions, please contact your company HR Dept. and/or email the Guadalupe
Home & School Club (GHSC) Treasurer (firstname.lastname@example.org) for assistance.
