A matching gift, also known as a matching fund or matching donation is a charitable gift made toward a non-profit organization by a matching donor (e.g., an employer) under the provision that an original donor (e.g., an employee) first makes a gift toward that organization.
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Most of these programs match contributions naira for naira and will double (or even triple!) the amount of your gift.
Some employers will also provide matching funds to support employee volunteer hours.
