Matching Gifts


​If you’ve made a donation or volunteered your time to BBBSLV, you may be eligible for a Matching Gift from your employer that will double the impact of your generosity. For example: The average cost for us to create and maintain a Big/Little match for one year is $1,200. This means that a $1,200 donation could allow us to match two local children in need with a devoted, supportive mentor — by simply utilizing a Matching Gift benefit, offered by many employers.

Participating companies each have their own policies and submission deadlines. Past donations may still be eligible for a match, so contact your Human Resources department to learn more today!


What are employee matching gift programs?

Employee matching gift programs are corporate giving programs in which the company matches donations made by employees to eligible nonprofit organizations, most often dollar for dollar. It’s a very simple, free opportunity to double your contribution to us!

What are volunteer grant programs?

Volunteer grant programs are corporate giving programs in which companies provide monetary donations to organizations where employees volunteer regularly.

If you are a BIG volunteer or a Board Member, it’s an easy way to provide us with additional financial support!

How do I request a matching gift or volunteer grant?

Requesting a matching gift or volunteer grant is normally a quick process which must be initiated by the donor/volunteer. You can do this by filling out and submitting a paper match form provided by your employer or through an electronic submission process.

Some companies will even match for spouses or retirees! Simply contact your Human Resources Department to learn more.
