What's gift matching and how do I get it?

2 minutes read time

Speed. Invisibility. Astral travel. The list of dreamed-of superpowers is long and just plain peculiar. When it comes to good deeds, you too might have a secret superpower. Especially if you work for an organisation or company.


Your superpower could be gift matching. Many organisations, big and small, offer this as part of their corporate social responsibility (CSR). Basically, they match your donation or funds raised for a worthy cause. Dollar for dollar, pound for pound, euro for euro. If you’re unsure how to make your claim and don’t have a dedicated CSR colleague, we suggest asking a helpful member in HR.

If you’ve received donations from friends or colleagues in other businesses, let them know about gift matching. They might be able to claim it, too. Gift matching can make your fundraising twice as legendary and give your company a special warm and fuzzy feeling.


Your workplace may offer gift matching, even if no one’s mentioned it. It’s easy to find out. Just ask your manager or someone in HR whether they do it (it's sometimes called corporate matching or internal giving). Some places are even known to triple your donations.

If you don’t ask, you won’t know. In fact, we’ve had people tell us they didn’t ask until their fifth Movember. That’s four years of missed gift matching. Imagine how much good could have been done with those extra much-needed funds.
