Many employers sponsor corporate matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions that their employees make. With a matching gift from your employer, you may be able to double or even triple the size of your original gift. Some companies also match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. If your company has a matching gift program, contact your company’s human resources department to learn about your options. Companies have various methods by which you can submit your matching gift request -- online forms, automated phone systems, or a paper form that you submit to Marietta Homeless Authority. If your company uses a paper matching gift form, please complete and sign the form and send it to Marietta Homeless Authority along with your contribution, and we will take care of the rest. If you have given a gift recently or in this calendar year, you may still be able to ask your company to match it.
