WORKPLACE GIVING AND MATCHING GIFTS
Workplace Giving Campaigns
Participate in your company’s employee giving campaign to leverage the link between your professional life and your commitment to The Center for Violence Prevention and Self Defense (CVPSD). Many companies match employee donations dollar-for-dollar, meaning your donation of $45 per month can be worth more than $1,000 each year.
What are matching gifts?
Corporate matching gifts are a type of philanthropy in which companies financially match donations that their employees make to nonprofit organizations. When an employee makes a donation, they’ll request a matching gift from their employer. The employer then makes their own donation to the nonprofit. Companies usually match donations at a 1:1 ratio, but some will match at a 2:1, 3:1, or even a 4:1 ratio.
Make a gift to CVPSD through your employer’s charitable giving campaign. Look for us in the Combined Federal Campaign booklet under Center for Violence Prevention and Self Defense, Inc. or write us in.
Matching Gift Programs
Participating in a matching gift program makes your donation go further. Many companies encourage employees to donate to their favorite charities by matching their contributions, in some cases dollar-for-dollar or more. Some companies may match gifts made by retirees or spouses of employees.
How Do I Apply for a Matching Gift?
Request a matching gift form and program guidelines from your human resources department.
Complete the employee section of the form and send it to Center for Violence Prevention and Self Defense with your donation. If you have made your contribution online, simply complete the form and mail to:
39-10 Worthington Ct
Freehold, NJ 07728
We will complete the form and forward it to your employer’s matching gifts office for processing. The company will send its matching donation directly to CVPSD.
