In addition to online donations, there are other ways you can support St. Peter’s and one of those ways is through matching gift programs. Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift.
To find out if your company will match please review this list of matching gift companies. If you do not find your employer on the list, please check with your company to see if it offers a matching gift program.
If your employer requires additional information please contact our finance manager, Debra Pauling.
MATCHING GIFTS FAQ
- What is Matching Gifts?
Matching gifts is a contribution strategy provided by companies which allow companies to give into charities that are important to their employees. With matching gifts, your company contributes money to match your giving.
- How is Matching Gifts beneficial?
You can increase your giving into the ministries at St. Peter’s without increasing what you are giving out of your pocket. For example, if employer matches 100% of your gift of $500, the ministries at St. Peter’s will receive $1000.
- What should I do to get involved with Matching Gifts?
Find out if your employer has a Matching Gifts Program. If your employer does, following the procedures provided by your employer for Matching Gifts.
- What if my company does not give to churches?
St. Peter’s Church and World Outreach Center is more than a church. Employers who don’t give to churches, can make their contributions to the Center for Comprehensive Services (CCS) which is a non-profit outreach housed in the Family Life Enrichment Center (FLEC).
- How does giving to the Center for Comprehensive Services benefit St. Peter’s?
St. Peter’s supports the Center for Comprehensive Services. The more self-supporting the Center for Comprehensive Services becomes, less support will need to come from St. Peters and St. Peter’s would have more funding for other ministries.
