What do IBM, ExxonMobil, and Bristol-Myers Squibb all have in common? They have an employee matching gift program.
Did you know thousands of employers offer matching gift programs, from Fortune 500 companies to local mom-and-pop businesses? Suppose you work at Johnson & Johnson or Coca-Cola. In that case, your employer will match your gift to a charitable organization because 65-70 percent of their employees participate in the matching gift program.
However, many people, including supporters of the La Mirada Symphony, work for companies with matching gift programs. Unfortunately, an estimated $4 billion in matching gifts goes unclaimed a year because people don’t know that their company will provide a match to their employee’s contributions to a charitable nonprofit organization.
While many companies provide a dollar-to-dollar match, some will even provide a two-to-one match, meaning your $500 gift can become $1,500!
Become a donor through your company’s matching gift program
If you aren’t sure if your company has a matching gift program, your Human Resources Department is a great start to see if your company has one or would be willing to consider starting one.
More importantly, your gift will bring in more resources to support our music programs, which include our free classical concerts, which we have been providing to the local community for 60 years.
La Mirada Symphony Association member has offered to match every donation dollar-for-dollar up to $20,000!
A generous La Mirada Symphony Association member has offered to match all donations up to their $20,000 gift! That means every gift that our loyal contributors give will be doubled! We can’t think of a better way to honor your support. Your generosity is how we can keep our symphony alive.
As we come out of the challenges of the past few years, we see a season full of promise.
Your help is needed to ensure we can take advantage of this fantastic opportunity. Every gift will count during our “Matching Fund Drive.” We value your support and are grateful for contributions of any size. You can make this gift a reality.
