Did you know that lots of companies like to encourage generosity and helping others? Many employers have matching gift programs where they match the donations their employees make to charities. Some companies will even match donations from spouses and retired workers, too.

Did you know that for less than the price of a latte, $2.25, a student can be trained in our lifesaving programs? And we offer our programs at no-cost to schools across the country, thanks to the generous support of people like you. As a tax-deductible charity, the Sandy Hook Promise Foundation (EIN: 46-1657101) is often eligible for matching gifts. Read on to find out how your generosity can go even further.

How Do You Ask Your Company to Match Donations?

All you have to do is fill out this brief form and your gift may be matched by your employer. Then, your donation could be doubled, or even tripled! Every little bit helps us protect children from school shootings and violence all across the country.

To find out if your workplace matches gifts, just type the name of their company into our easy-to-use form.
