  • Matching Gifts

    Your company may offer a matching gift program to encourage charitable donations. Some employers match your donations equally, while others will double or even triple their matching amounts!  Some companies even match donations by spouses of employees, or retirees. Ask your human resources department if your company offers matching gifts; if so, your donation to The Gateway for Cancer Research will go even further.

    You can use the search option below to see if your employer offers matching programs. Just plug in your company’s name and hit “search” to see if your company is listed. If you don’t find your employer, check with your human resources department to make sure you’re not missing out on a matching program.

    If your employer requires a Federal Tax Identification Number, please use: 73-1386920. If you have questions about matching gifts, call 888.221.2873 and one of our team members will help with any paperwork or other company requirements.
