Matching Gift Info
Did you know you can double or even triple the impact of your donation to AIDS Walk New York for free?
Matching Gift Programs are programs sponsored by many employers that offer to match charitable contributions made by their employees. Luckily for you, this process takes just a few minutes and is absolutely free!
Each company has its own approach to charitable giving – so please be sure to confirm matching gift program guidelines & participation directly with your employer.
To find out if your employer, or one of your sponsor's employers, has a matching gift program, please enter the company name below.
And even if you don’t find the company name below, we still encourage you and your donors to inquire directly with a charitable giving representative!
Thank you for taking the time to maximize the impact of your donation!
Information for Donors:
If your company has a matching gift program, please request a Matching Gift Form from the human resources department. Give the completed form to the walker you have sponsored. The walker will bring the form on the day of the Walk to turn in with your donation. If your company has an online Matching Gift Form, please forward the email confirmation to the walker.
For your reference, the GMHC (Gay Men's Health Crisis) Tax ID Number is: 13-3130146
Information for Walkers:
To receive credit for your matching gift donations as part of your AIDS Walk New York fundraising total, please bring each completed Matching Gift Form, along with the accompanying donation, with you on the day of the Walk. Please ask each of your donors with an online matching gift program to forward you his/her matching gift receipt, and then follow these instructions to receive credit for the match. You have two options:
1. Forward the email confirmation of the matching gift to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Make sure the following information is included in the email:
a. Dollar amount of the match
b. Donor’s name
c. Walker’s name
It is NOT necessary to bring additional paperwork when you turn in your funds at the Walk. The AIDS Walk participant will be credited with the match when you forward the email to email@example.com.
2. If you do not email your confirmation, you may print it out and bring it to SIGN-IN on the day of the Walk in order to receive credit for the matching gift donation.
If you have questions about matching gifts, please call the AIDS Walk New York office at 212.807.9255 (WALK) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
