If you're looking to make a difference with your charitable donations, one of the best ways to do so is by taking advantage of your employer's donation matching program. However, many people are unaware of these programs, leaving a significant amount of money unused. Here's how you can request your employer to match your donation and maximize your impact.
Firstly, check with your HR or People team to see if your company offers a donation matching program. If they do, sign up or create an account with the donation service provider they partner with. If your company doesn't currently offer a matching program, consider asking them to start one. Daffy for Work is a modern workplace-giving solution designed to make it easier than ever for companies to empower their employees to give to the causes they care most about.
Next, familiarize yourself with your company’s donation matching policy. Understand the match ratio, the total donation amount your company will match each year, the minimum donation amount they will match, and whether they match volunteer hours. Also, check if there are any exclusions or limits on matching for certain organizations or causes.
Once you've made your donation through Daffy, you can easily submit it to your employer for matching. Simply find the donation you’d like your employer to match on daffy.org, click “View,” download the receipt, and upload it to your employer matching portal or send it to your HR department to request the match.
If you have any questions or issues with getting your Daffy contributions or donations matched, let us know. We're here to help you double your impact—and would absolutely hate to see that money go to waste.
Lastly, spread the word. Encourage your coworkers to get their donations matched, and tell friends about these programs. The more people who know about them, the more money that can be put to good use supporting worthy causes.
In conclusion, Daffy is a great option for a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF). It not only simplifies the process of making charitable donations but also helps you leverage your company's matching program to maximize your impact. So, start using Daffy today and make your donations count twice as much.
