     Learn how to double or even triple your donation!

    What are matching gift programs?

    Matching gift programs are charitable giving programs set up by corporations in which the company matches donations made by employees to eligible nonprofit organizations. Through corporate donation matching, your employer can double or even triple your contribution to LEO ZCC, making it go further – you can increase the impact of your charitable donation! The process is as simple as completing a standard matching gift form from your employer and mailing it to the center along with your personal donation.
