How can one take advantage of their employer's matching program?


Taking advantage of your employer's matching program can significantly increase the impact of your charitable donations. Here's how you can do it: 1. **Check if your employer offers a matching program**: Many people are unaware that their employers offer donation matching programs. Start by checking with your HR or People team. If your company has a donation matching program, be sure to take advantage of it. If they don't, consider asking them to start one. Daffy for Work is a modern workplace-giving solution that makes it easy for companies to empower their employees to give to the causes they care about. 2. **Understand your employer's donation matching policy**: Every company's policy is different. Some match at a 1:1 ratio, while others offer a more generous 2:1 or even 3:1 ratio. Some companies, like Google and Microsoft, match up to $10,000 and $15,000 per employee per year, respectively. Understanding your company's policy will help you maximize your charitable impact. 3. **Use Daffy for your donations**: Daffy is a great option for a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF). It's easy to use and allows you to support your favorite causes or organizations. If you have any questions or issues with getting your Daffy contributions matched, their team is ready to assist. 4. **Spread the word**: Many matching programs go unused due to lack of awareness. Encourage your coworkers to get their donations matched and tell friends about the opportunity to double their impact. Donation matching is a powerful way to increase your charitable impact. By using Daffy and taking advantage of your employer's matching program, you can make your donations go even further.
