Matching Gifts

Does your employer match charitable gifts to nonprofit organizations?

Many do and it makes your donation go even farther. A few Pittsburgh area employers who match employee (and potentially retiree) gifts include Google, Dollar Bank, Home Depot, State Farm, Verizon, PNC, US Steel, Mellon Bank, plus others. Check with your human resources or talent management division or your company’s website for details.

Bonus: some employers also match the volunteer time of their employees.
