Matching Gifts

Did you know that many companies sponsor matching gift programs which DOUBLE the impact of their employees' personal contributions without increasing the obligation of the individual donor? There are over 500 participating companies in the U.S. that will match employee's gifts dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple-match! During 2013-14, eight companies matched almost $5,000 in employee gifts to Bishop Guilfoyle!

Just think what an impact this program would have on the students of BG if we all remembered to check with our employers and see if they match gifts! It's such an easy way to double the donations the school would receive. Please take time to check it out. The only thing it will cost you is the time it takes to ask for a match. Even if your company isn't listed below, check with them anyway. If you ask enough times, they might make it a policy!

How do you arrange a match? It's easy!

1. Obtain a matching gift form from your company. Mail it along with your gift to: Bishop Guilfoyle Catholic High School, 2400 Pleasant Valley Blvd. Altoona, PA 16602

2. Provide your company with your receipt or acknowledgment from BG that demonstrates a gift was made. They will take it from there and mail a check to BG.

3. Be sure to check your company's policy. Some employers require you to register your gift online through their website. If your company match process does not require you to send us a form, please let us know that you have arranged a match when you send your gift to BG.

Thank you ! If you have any questions, please contact the Development Office at 814-944-3987.
