Frequently Asked Questions

What's a matching gift?

A matching gift is a charitable donation made by a corporation that matches an employee's donation to a nonprofit. Search for your company above.

How do I request a matching gift?

This is a simple process that you must request after making your donation to FMSC. It only takes a few minutes to fill out the form, which you can print to send in the mail or fill out on your company's website and submit online.

  1. Donate and save your tax receipt. Some organizations may allow you to request a matching gift up to a year after you've made a donation to FMSC.
  2. Search for your company using the search widget above. If you don't see your company, get in touch with your Human Resources department to ask about a matching gift program.
  3. Use the Matching Gift form available online to submit electronically, or download the form to print, fill out and send to FMSC.

If I made a donation a while ago, can I still apply for a matching gift?

Yes, absolutely! Many organizations may allow you to request a matching gift up to one year after you've made a donation to FMSC.

What is a volunteer grant?

Referred to as volunteer grant programs, volunteer matching programs or something similar, a volunteer grant is a donation given by a company to an organization where employees are volunteering frequently.

For example: If you volunteered your time to pack meals with FMSC and raised money to pay for the meals you packed, your employer may donate cash for your volunteer time.

Your company likely has specific guidelines about how this works. Search to see if they offer volunteer grants, and if so, follow the instructions on how best to submit your volunteer hours. If in doubt, contact your HR department for more information.

This is an amazing way to provide more meals for kids in need even after you've given your time to volunteer at FMSC!

I didn't see my company on the search page. What should I do?

Your employer may still match your donation, even if they're not on our list. Check with your Human Resources department or manager and ask them if your donation to FMSC can be matched.

Can my company's matching gift be applied to a MobilePack event or other fundraising activity?

Yes, when possible. Complete donation information and instructions must be provided immediately to FMSC by your organization when the donation is made, or we may not be able to complete your request.

This is great, but I have more questions!

We're happy to help if we can! If you have specific questions about your company policies, we won't know much about that, so make sure to contact your HR department.
