Employer Matching Programs
One of the smartest ways to amplify your donation is through employer matching gift programs. Many community-minded employers have a matching gift program and will match your gift dollar for dollar. Some companies even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses!
Contact your Human Resources or Corporate Social Responsibility department to determine if your company participates in a matching gifts program. Your gift may be doubled or tripled, increasing the impact of your donation.
If your company matches, contact us. We would be happy to assist you through the process.
Give Through Payroll-Deductions
Friends LA participates in employer-sponsored payroll deduction campaigns. If your company has other programs, such as Benevity, connect with your Human Resources or Corporate Social Responsibility department to enroll.
