How Your Donation to FIRE Can Go Twice the Distance

By March 3, 2011

Want to double (or even triple) the impact of your donation to FIRE, without taking any more money out of your own pocket? It’s easy! Many companies offer matching gift programs through which they will match charitable donations made by their employees. To find out if your company is one of these, contact your Human Resources department.

If your employer does have a matching gift program, simply request a matching gift form, complete and sign it, and mail it to FIRE along with your donation. We’ll take care of the rest. If you’ve already donated to FIRE but still want to have your gift matched, that’s not a problem. You can mail us the completed matching gift form, and we’ll verify that we received your donation. Some employers even offer matching gift forms onlinemaking it even easier for you to maximize your donation.

I know that donors often wish they could afford to contribute more to their favorite causes, and I hope that for some of you, your employer’s matching gift program will give you the opportunity to do just that. Please take a few minutes today to find out if your employer is one of the many who offer matching gift programs.

Should you have any questions about matching gifts or about making a donation to FIRE, please do not hesitate to contact us at support@thefire.org. As always, all of us at FIRE are deeply grateful for the generous support of our many friends and allies.
