Many companies offer a "matching gift" benefit to their employees to encourage charitable giving. Sometimes the gifts of retirees, members of the board of directors, and spouses are also eligible. Some companies without formal programs will match your gift, if you ask. Please check with your benefits manager.
To submit a matching gift to Upakar, first request a matching gift application from your benefits manager or Human Resources office. Policies may vary and certain restrictions can apply. Some gift applications are web-based or can be completed via automated phone applications. Paper applications may be sent, along with your gift, to:
Once Upakar receives your information, we will verify your gift and complete the process. Your employer will then send an additional gift to Upakar on your behalf.
