Matching gifts

We are so close!  Together we have raised almost all of the money needed to complete our project at FOVC.  We are just $3,200.00 shy and when you look at how far we’ve come, (we’ve raised $47,500 of the $51,000 needed) it is hard not to imagine that together we can finish this project.  While there are many ways you can help raise money, there is a way you can also double your giving – matching employer grants/donations. 

There are so many companies out there that have programs to match the donations their employees make.  Employers don’t always advertise that they match employee donations, but here is a list of several of the companies out there that match.  Plus, there are many more not on this list.  So, please ask your employer because if they do match you can quickly double your donation.
