Matching Gifts

Did you know that you could double or even triple your generous, tax-deductible gift through the help of a corporate match?  Last season, corporate matching gifts provided more than $40,000 in contributions to Opera San José.

Many companies offer matching gift programs, and will match charitable donations made by their employees.  Check with your benefits manager or Human Resources department for your company’s matching policies and restrictions- sometimes gifts by retirees, members of the board of directors, and spouses are also eligible. You can also use the Matchinggifts.com website to look up your employer to see if they offer a matching gift program.

Your employer will provide you with instructions on how to participate in their program. Your gift will then be listed in our donor listings at the combined level of your donation and the matching gift, and your employer will be listed among our matching gift companies.  Best of all, matching funds may elevate your donor level, increasing your benefits!

Find out how to add your employer to our list! For more information, please contact Miriam Frazier in our Development Office at (408) 437-4462.
