Beau Biden Foundation launches gift matching program
Wilmington – The Beau Biden Foundation for the Protection of Children announced today that supporters can now double their impact through a new Matching Gifts Program. Through a partnership with Double the Donation, supporters of the Foundation and its mission to protect children and confront abuse can have their gifts leveraged to help protect even more children by simply completing a short matching gift form on the Beau Biden Foundation website.
“We are always looking for new ways to help protect children. The Matching Gifts Program allows our supporters to protect even more children without giving any more than they can afford. Their generosity is matched by their employer. I truly hope folks will take a moment to use our site and check if their employer is one of our match partners,” said a spokesperson for the organization in a statement.
Each year thousands of companies (including more than 65% of Fortune 500 companies), representing more than 18 million people, offer matching gifts made by their employees to support nonprofits like the Beau Biden Foundation. Local employers currently enrolled in the Match Program include BlackRock, Inc., Bank of America, Boeing, AstraZeneca, JPMorgan Chase & Co., and Comcast.
Select companies also offer an additional incentive for those employees/supporters who are also volunteering with the Beau Biden Foundation. This volunteer grant program rewards employees for giving back to their communities. Participating companies provide monetary donations to eligible nonprofits like the Beau Biden Foundation as a way to recognize employees who volunteer. These grants enable corporations to give back to their communities and support organizations that employees are already passionate about. Hundreds of participating companies offer volunteer grant programs with donations generally ranging from $10-15 per hour volunteered. Meaning that not only will the Beau Biden Foundation receive the help provided by its amazing volunteers, but the Foundation will gain additional contributions from the volunteer’s employers as well.
The Foundation has created a matching gift page on their website to make it easy for supporters to check if their company will match gifts, as well as the form guidelines and instructions needed to submit the match – www.BeauBidenFoundation.org/MatchingGifts.
