Matching Gift

Double your donation with a Matching Gift!

Many companies sponsor matching gift programs that amplify the impact of their employees’ personal contributions without increasing the obligation of the individual donor. Most participating companies will match employee gifts dollar for dollar, and some will even double- or triple-match a gift. In addition to matching charitable donations of their employees, some companies will also match donations made by spouses, retirees, and even members of their corporate board of directors.

Companies with matching gift policies in our area include but are not limited to the following:


Bank of America

Best Buy

Brink’s Home Security

Bristol-Myers Squibb








Home Depot



Morgan Stanley



Toys “R” Us


Even if your employer is not listed above, please check with your Human Resources manager. Some companies without formal matching gift or charity programs will match your gift, if you ask.

Then, follow the steps listed below to complete the process.

  1.  Request matching gift information from your Human Resources office. Matching policies vary and certain restrictions apply, so please read your company’s matching gift program rules.
  2. Take a minute to complete the matching gift application process. Some companies now have web-based or automated phone application processes. Paper applications may be returned, along with your gift, to: YWCA Mohawk Valley, 7 Rutger Park, Utica, NY 13501.
  3. YWCA Mohawk Valley will verify receipt of your gift and complete the process. Your employer will send an additional gift to the YWCA on your behalf!
