  • A charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of the donated securities.

Matching Gifts

A gift can be doubled or even tripled by a corporate matching gift program.

Many companies have matching gift programs that support the causes their employees care about without increasing the obligation of the individual donor. Most participating companies will match employee gifts dollar for dollar, and some will even triple-match a gift.

Find out if your company has a matching program by searching here and download a pdf of your company’s matching gift form or contact your company’s human resources department to obtain access to their employee giving portal.
If your employer matches gifts to nonprofit institutions, such as The Bishop's School, you must complete their matching gift request and send gift verification emails to Brittany Caricato
If you have any questions, please contact Brittany Caricato.
