An employer matching gift program is employee driven corporate philanthropy designed to support the nonprofit organizations a company’s employees are passionate about by matching employee donations.

An estimated $4 – $7 billion in employer matching gift funds go unclaimed per year in the United States. With less than 10% of MBEF donors currently providing matching gifts, the potential for growth is exponential.

We encourage all our donors to ask your corporate giving or human resources department if your employer participates in a matching gift program.

Applying for a Matching Gift and Pledging a Matching Gift to MBEF

1. Make your donation to MBEF and use our searchable database tool to find out if your company is already listed as a matching gift donor. If you find your employer, indicate your matching gift pledge with your donation and proceed to step 3. If you don’t see your employer listed proceed to step 2.

2. Reach out to your corporate giving or human resource department to find out if your employer will match your donation to MBEF. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that funds K-12 education. Please see below for additional information your employer may request.

3. Once you have made your donation to MBEF and completed your pledge payments, initiate the matching gift application process with your employer. *Some employers have a 60 to 90-day deadline between the time you fulfill your pledge payments and time you must apply for a match.

4. Once you have applied for your gift, the process varies by employer. We encourage you to inquire with your employer regarding the steps to take once you have completed your application.

Through the generosity of corporate matching gift programs and our diligent donors, MBEF continues to increase funding through matching gifts. Below is a list of companies who have contributed to MBEF through employee driven philanthropy. Thank you for supporting public education!
