What is a matching gift program?

Matching gift programs are charitable giving programs set up by businesses and corporations in which the company matches donations made by employees to eligible nonprofit organizations like Sheltered Yoga. Matching gifts offer corporations a wonderful opportunity to join with their employees in a partnership which rewards, and is driven by, the employee’s generosity and greatly benefits the nonprofit of choice.  Some corporations will even allow a 2:1 match (such as Johnson & Johnson)!

How do I match my gift?

Matching gifts are a great way to double your gift to Sheltered Yoga. Here are some details on how to find out if your employer will match your generous contribution. If your company is eligible, follow these easy steps to watch your generosity double:

-Request a matching gift form from your employer or inquire what website to visit in order to access online forms. The Human Resource department would probably be your best point of contact for any questions about matching gift programs.

-Send the completed and signed form to:

                   Sheltered Yoga
                   c/o Tina LeMar
                   PO Box 8295
