Many corporations will match charitable donations made by their employees. You can make your gift to the Vermont Foodbank go further by having your employer match your contribution, which may double or even triple the value of your gift. Some companies even match gifts made by employees' spouses or retirees. There is no additional cost to you and the matching gift counts toward your total giving.

How To Have Your Gift Matched
Requesting a matching gift from your employer is easy. First, make your gift to the Vermont Foodbank as you normally would. Then look for your employer’s name on the list below to see if your company has a matching gift program.
If they do, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it, completed and signed, with your gift. If you donate online, check the matching gift box on the donation page and then submit the completed form from your employer separately. You may be able to submit these forms electronically, as more companies are moving to a paperless system and using the internet to process matching gift requests.

Even if your company is not listed here, please check with your Human Resources Department to see whether your gift to the Vermont Foodbank can be matched.
