What is a matching gift?
A matching gift is a type of corporate giving program where a company makes a gift to a charitable organization after an employee has made one. For example: You work for Company X and make a $25.00 gift to Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. Company X matches employee giving to charitable organizations 1:1. Once you have informed Company X that you've made your gift they will also make a $25.00 gift to Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. This essentially doubles your giving!
