matching gifts

Many companies encourage and support philanthropy and will match employee gifts to nonprofit organizations. Matching gifts are extremely important because they enable donors to double or even triple their contributions to CAA. If you, your spouse, or partner work for a company with a Matching Gifts Program, please obtain a matching gift form from your company’s Human Resources or Personnel Department, complete the necessary information, and enclose it with your donation. We will certify the receipt of your gift, and return the form to your company. The total value of your matching gift will be recognized.
