Corporate Matching Gift Programs
Many companies have corporate matching gift programs through which they match charitable contributions by their employees. By participating, your employer can multiply your gift to the JCF and you receive ‘credit’ for the entire amount received.
Many studies show that corporate charitable giving helps improve a company's bottom line. When a company acts responsibly and ethically, it builds lasting trust and a commitment to corporate responsibility. The benefits of this investment begin in the workplace and extend to local communities and customers.
- Over the past year, the top 70 corporate philanthropists gave $154.9 million to Bay Area nonprofits. That’s more than a 10% increase of over the prior year.
- 76% of consumers indicate they would switch brands or retailers to one associated with a good cause, when price and quality are equal
- 87% of employees at companies with philanthropic programs feel a stronger sense of loyalty to their employer
