Matching Gifts: The easiest way to increase the impact of your support of WBGO!

What if you could double or triple the amount of your support to WBGO in less than 10 minutes and do so at no additional cost to you?

It's easier than you think if your company has a Matching Gifts program.

Today more and more corporations such as Prudential, ExxonMobil, IBM, Pfizer, PSEG, Verizon, American Express and Chubb are supporting causes their employees care about through the use of matching gifts.

These businesses and many others participate in philanthropic giving by matching employees' contributions at a 1:1 dollars ratio or, as in the case of The Soros Fund, 3:1.

Matching gifts are unrestricted in nature and are in most cases used to help offset the cost of day to day operations. And it doesn't matter if you're working in the U.S. or abroad - if your company has a Matching Gifts program, your contributions to the station regardless of where they are made will most likely eligible.

Matching gift forms are normally available from your HR representative though some companies will ask that you take to a few minutes to complete an on-line application. Your matching gift requests will then be submitted directly through your HR department who will contact us for verification or you'll be advised to mail it to WBGO. Once we confirm that a donation has been paid, a check is sent to WBGO that matches your contribution based on payment guidelines.

In just a few minutes you can easily turn $25 into $50; $100 to $200 and a $1200 contribution into $2,400 or more!

We know you care about WBGO because your contribution of support tells us so. Now take the next step and join your fellow WBGO members who have already seen their donation amounts increase two-fold. Ask your HR representative if your company has a matching gift program.
