211: Matching Gifts
Recorded On: 03/30/2023
Employer matching gifts can allow donors to double (or even triple!) the impact of their support. Unfortunately, they’re frequently overlooked by annual giving programs. And while identifying these opportunities and promoting them to prospects is important, you also need to develop sound and efficient internal systems for fulfillment, reporting and stewardship. Doing so will not only ensure that companies and donors see value in their support, but will help ensure that matching gifts continue to be a consistent and reliable source of annual fund revenue in the future.
