MATCHING DONATIONS

Matching Gifts are an easy way to double or even triple your donation to United Resource Connection. Many companies support employee philanthropy by offering matching gift programs. By taking advantage of your employer’s matching gift program, you can maximize the value of your gift at no additional cost.

Will your employer match your gift?

Matching gift guidelines are determined by your employer. Please talk to your employer about their specific matching gift guidelines. If you do not see our company listed, please contact your Human Resources department to get United Resource Connection added to your company’s list of approved charities. While there, also ask if they have a “volunteer hours” matching program. Many companies will match an employee’s time spent volunteering with a financial gift to the nonprofit. Learn more about the volunteer hour matching programs.

How does a matching gift program work?

Note: Programs may vary from company to company, however, the overall process is usually very simple:

1. Confirm that your company has a matching gifts program and obtain the appropriate Matching Gifts Form from your employer. Matching gifts must be employee initiated. United Resource Connection cannot request the match. Your company may already have United Resource Connection in its database. Try looking us up by our United States Tax ID Number 20-2366090, with our mailing address: 1730 Section Rd Unit 37040, Cincinnati OH 45222, or our email address donations@unitedresourceconnection.org.

2. Complete the verification form provided by your employer, either online or by paper, and send it to United Resource Connection at our postal or email address: United Resource Connection, 1730 Section Rd Unit 37040, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA donations@unitedresourceconnection.org

3. United Resource Connection will verify your donation and send the form back to your company.

4. Your company will send a matching gift contribution to United Resource Connection!
