Double your donation with matching gifts
Multiply your donation times two with your company’s matching program. Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest. The impact of your gift to our organization may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

Send your company’s matching gift form along with your donation via mail (our address is below). You can also ask your company to add grameenfoundation.org to its matching gift program. Questions? Just contact us at (202) 628-3560.
