Employer Gifts Multiply the Impact of Your Donation


Did you know you can double your support for the CDGA Foundation, without even giving a dollar more? Many employers offer matching gift programs to match charitable donations by their employees. Each company has its own guidelines. Typically, the following donations may be matched by an employer:

  • Gifts made by employees of the company
  • Gifts from the spouses of company employees
  • Gifts made by retirees of the company

If you request a grant from your Donor Advised Fund (DAF), your company may match the grant as well. Additionally, any donations made to the CDGA Foundation as part of annual CDGA membership registration may be eligible as well.

If you volunteer with us, your company may also offer a volunteer grant as a way to recognize your time and support.
