Did you know that it may be possible to DOUBLE or even TRIPLE the impact of your donation to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation (ALPLF)? Corporate philanthropic matching gift programs match employee donations, usually dollar for dollar, to an eligible nonprofit organization such as the ALPLF. In many cases ‘Matching’ donation programs are a big part of a corporation’s social responsibility initiative.
Making donors like you aware of this gift-giving opportunity and the existence of these programs is vital to the success of our fundraising campaigns on behalf of our 16th President. Matching gift programs are offered by companies around the world. The chances are relatively high that the company YOU work for has such a program! The ALPLF urges those who donate this year to take advantage of the billions of dollars in employer matching funds that get left on the table each year.
Visit your employer’s human resources department to learn if your generous gift to the ALPLF is eligible for a match and to pick up and complete your corporate matching gift form.
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to double or triple the impact of your donation in support of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum and Library. *Please note that funds from matching gifts cannot be used to upgrade your membership.
