FEBRUARY IS MATCHING GIFTS MONTH

The month of February has been designated as Matching Gift Month.

Nearly 16,000 companies and subsidiaries offer matching gift programs as a benefit to their employees. About 4,500 of the 16,000 match volunteer time, and many match retirees and spousal giving.

Does your company, or a past company, match gifts? We've found a list online, so check it out and see! If they do, and if you give to the Museum, we'd love to work with you on your company's matching gifts program.
