Employee matching gifts are donations an employer makes to match its employees' charitable contributions to eligible nonprofit organizations.  Employee matching gifts often are dollar-for-dollar, but some companies will double or even triple the size of your original donation.

Please contact your human resources or community giving department to find out if your employer has a matching gift program and how to participate. Typically, employers will have matching gift forms, online applications or a phone system in place to process the matching gift. You may include this form with your check or mail it after the gift has been made.

Your employer will validate that the donation was submitted and will send a check of the same value (or higher, depending on the program) to Warrior Foundation Freedom Station.
