Workplace Giving

Matching Gifts

You can double or triple the impact of your support!

Many organizations offer matching gift programs to increase the value of donations made by their employees. DESC is a nonprofit organization, and our 501(c)(3) letter is available on request.

What do I do?

  • Request a matching gift form from your employer, fill out your portion and mail it in the reply envelope with your donation.
  • If you’ve already made your gift online or at an event, email or mail the matching gift form to the address below.
  • More companies are moving to online giving portals and offering the option of payroll deductions. We’re signed up with Benevity, YourCause and several others. If you’re using an online system and can’t find us, let us know!

All correspondence and inquiries about workplace giving can be sent to: gifts@desc.org
