Employee matching gifts are grants an employer makes to match its employees’ charitable contributions. Usually associated with corporate grantmakers, employee matching gifts often are dollar-for-dollar, but some companies will give double or even triple the original donation. Some companies may also give matching gifts for employees’ volunteer efforts. Procedures vary with each company. Typically, individuals must submit forms to their employers. They usually can get more information about their matching gift benefits from their human resources department.
Current UGA employees may elect to give automatically through payroll deduction. Employees may choose to make a specified pledge (a set amount to be withheld from each paycheck for a specific number of paychecks) or an open-ended pledge (a set amount to be withheld from each paycheck until the Gift Accounting Office is notified to discontinue payments). Contact the Georgia 4-H Foundation for guidelines and authorization forms.
