Maximize the impact of your generosity with a matching gift, which is a donation from the company you work for or have retired from to a charitable organization of your designation. An increasing number of companies are offering matching gift opportunities for both employees and retirees. Each company varies in policy, as well as by their percentage of a match.
To see if your company has a matching gift program, check with your employer’s Human Resource/Personnel Office.
Monthly gifts allow you to divide your gift into manageable increments by establishing affordable, automatic deductions from your credit card, debit card or checking account at the beginning of each month instead of one large gift at year-end. Lakeside is challenging 200 friends and families to unite and support the Annual Fund this fiscal year by committing a monthly gift.
