About Employer Matching Gifts

Support Us

Many companies encourage employees to donate to their favorite charities by matching their contributions, sometimes dollar-for-dollar or more. The impact of your gift could be doubled or even tripled! Some companies even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses of employees.

To find out if your company will match your donation to the Davis Phinney Foundation, inquire with your human resources department. A (very) partial list of participating employers is provided below. If your company has a matching program, request a matching gift form from your employer. Send the completed and signed form along with your gift, and we will take care of the rest.*

If your employer does not currently have a matching gift program, ask your human resources department if you can establish one with the Davis Phinney Foundation. Your employer may request our Employer Identification Number (EIN) (i.e. Federal Tax Identification Number), which is 20-0813566.

How Do I Apply for a Matching Gift?

  1. Obtain a matching gift form and program guidelines from your human resources department.
  2. Fill in the Employee section of the form and send it to the Davis Phinney Foundation together with your donation or, if you’ve already made your contribution online, simply complete the form and mail it to:Davis Phinney Foundation
    Attn: Matching Gifts
    1722 14th St, Suite 150
    Boulder CO  80302
  3. 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 the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
* Some companies disburse matching gifts on a quarterly or yearly schedule. To reduce administrative expenses, the Foundation will not forward a notice to employees when matching contributions are received. If you have questions about the status of your company’s matching donation, please contact your human resources department.
