Matchmaker, Matchmaker, make me a Match!

Did you know that many companies have gift-matching programs that will match your donation to the JewishColumbus Annual Campaign dollar for dollar? Gifts may include monthly payroll deductions as well as annual gifts. Gift-matching programs are a great way to maximize your personal contribution to the JewishColumbus Annual Campaign. Don’t leave money on the table! Take advantage of your company’s matching gift benefit to help increase YOUR impact for the community!

In addition to providing greater support for the community, your matching-gift donation offers other benefits:

For employees: You will be acknowledged at the recognition level that includes your employer’s match. For example, if you make a donation of $500 to JewishColumbus Annual Campaign and your employer’s matching gift brings the total contribution to $1,000, you will be recognized at the $1,000 level. This would give you eligibility to attend an event that requests a minimum suggested gift of $1,000.

For employers: Donations received from employers through their matching-gift programs are fully tax-deductible.

Important Notes 

  • If your company requires an Employer Identification Number (EIN), please use 31-0838745 
  • If your company offers a matching gift, the JewishColumbus Annual Campaign will receive it only after you have made your pledge payment.
