Matching Gifts and Volunteer Grants
Add even more value to your gift.
Did you know you could easily double – or even triple – your generous donation of time or money in support of our kids?
By participating in your employer’s matching gift or volunteer grant program, your contribution can go even further for our boys and girls.

Is there a limit on the amount my company will match?
Most companies set a limit on the amount they will match from any single individual. That amount is usually $1,000 or more.
How long will it take for my company to match my gift?
A company may match its employees’ gifts quarterly, annually or on some other basis. It can take anywhere from a few weeks to six or more months for Mercy Home to receive a match of your gift.
Can donations I’ve already made be matched?
Each company has different rules about how soon a matching gift form should be submitted after you make a donation. For the fastest results, you may turn in your form with your donation. In general, matching gift forms should be sent as soon as possible after you submit your gift, and in the same calendar year.
