Matching Gifts

Matching Gifts

 

When you give to Ethiopian Orphan Relief you are making a difference in the life of a child.  You are helping to give a child hope and healing.  Your donation may be the difference needed to provide one more meal or a warm blanket.  It could help to bring clean water or buy medicine for a sick child.  There are so many things that can be accomplished with the money we give and no amount is too small.  What my husband and I were surprised to learn, was that we could double our donation to EOR with a matching gift program.  For us it was thru my husband’s employer who has a program that matches donations made by employees.  Better yet, there are so many companies out there that have programs to match the donations their employees make.  Here is a list of just a few of the companies out there that match, but there are many more not on this list.  So the next time you give, please ask your employer.  As we found out, it is worth asking about and if they do match you can quickly double your donation.

  1. My husband works for one of the companies on the list and all the donations we’ve made to non-profit 501(3)(c) organizations have been matched. It is a good feeling!
