A company that sponsors a matching gift program establishes guidelines by which the company will match employees' or other individuals' philanthropic gifts to nonprofit organizations. Match rates and other criteria vary among programs.
In 2007, the Matching Gift Clearinghouse operated by CASE was merged with HEP to become the HEP/CASE Matching Gift Network.
The MatchMyGift™ App makes it easy for advancement professionals, trustees and volunteers to ensure gifts are matched for their favorite nonprofit by identifying opportunities at the point of solicitation. The MatchMyGift App is smartphone and tablet compatible.
