Corporate matching gifts

Match-Maker, Match-Maker, Make Me A Match! Did you know that many companies have gift-matching programs that will match your donation to JFS dollar for dollar? Gifts may include monthly payroll deductions as well as annual gifts. Gift-matching programs are a great way to maximize your personal contribution to JFFS. Don’t leave money on the table! Take advantage of your company’s matching gift benefit to help increase YOUR impact for the community!

In addition to providing greater support for the community, your matching-gift donation offers other benefits:
For employees: You will be acknowledged at the recognition level that includes your employer’s match. For example, if you make a donation of $500 to JFS and your employer’s matching gift brings the total contribution to $1,000, you will be recognized at the $1,000 level.
For employers: Donations received from employers through their matching-gift programs are fully tax-deductible.

Important Notes

  • JFS is a social service organization.
  • The IRS does not consider JFS to be a religious organization. As a 501(c)(3) corporation, we are required to file a 990 form, and we do so annually. A copy of our 990s can be found here.
  • If your company requires an Employer Identification Number (EIN), please use 45-2497063.
  • If your company offers a matching gift, JFS will receive it only after you have made your gift payment.
