How much in matching gift funds go unclaimed each year?


Every year, a significant amount of matching gift funds go unclaimed. This is largely due to a lack of awareness about employer matching programs. Many employees are unaware that their companies offer these programs, and as a result, they miss out on the opportunity to double their charitable impact. If you're looking to make the most of your charitable donations, it's crucial to understand your employer's donation matching policy. This includes knowing your company's match ratio, the total donation amount your company will match each year, the minimum donation amount your company will match, and whether your company matches volunteer hours. 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.
