Corporate Matching Gifts

Corporate matching gifts are a great way for supporters of The Legal Aid Society to maximize personal contributions to the Society and increase the impact of their gift. By taking advantage of a company’s matching gift benefit, you may be able to double or even triple the amount of a contribution.

To find out if your company has a matching gift program, please contact your Human Resources Department.

Each giving company has its own guidelines for employees, spouses, retirees, and widows/widowers. Most corporate matching gift procedures, however, are simple:

  • Request a Matching Form from your company.
  • Complete and submit the form to The Legal Aid Society along with your gift.
  • The Legal Aid Society will verify the completed form and return it to the company.
  • The company issues a matching gift contribution to The Legal Aid Society.
