Matching Gifts

Make Your Donation Go Further

What is corporate matching?

Many local companies match contributions to nonprofit organizations (US based 501(c)(3)). This can instantly double the money you donate to St. Nicholas School. 

Can my employer match my donation?
Yes! In fact, we highly encourage you to check with your employer to see if the company will match your pledge. Many companies will double – if not triple – your donation. Please ask your Human Resources department. Every company handles its corporate matching differently so please ask your HR department for details.


Does corporate matching benefit my employer?
Definitely, corporations are happy to match your donation as they, too, will get a tax deduction for their donation.

Will corporate matching impact me negatively?
Absolutely not.  Companies keep corporate matching data private. No one has access to this data. In most cases, companies outsource the entire process.

When should I apply for corporate matching?
Right now! Some companies distribute corporate matching funds right away, while others process them once a quarter. Some companies require you to submit corporate match applications certain times of the year. If your company offers corporate matching, please apply for it right away.
