Matching Gift Donations

Many companies, both large and small, have matching gift programs that double or even triple the tax-deductible donations made by their employees. These programs are a simple way to maximize the benefit of a donation to the Alliance.

The Alliance records the total gift as the sum of the donor's gift and the employer's match.

To make a matching gift donation to the Alliance:

  1. Employees should contact their company’s human resources office to determine whether their employer has a matching gift program.
     
  2. Obtain the appropriate forms from the human resources office. (Note: The Alliance sends an official acknowledgement of the employee’s donation to the matching company. This may be all the employer needs to process the matching gift, but usually an additional form is required by the employer. If so, complete the required “employee” sections and submit the form along with the Alliance’s donation form. The Alliance will complete the required sections, confirm receipt of the donation, and return the form to the employer.)
     
  3. Complete the Alliance’s donation form, including the “Matching Gift” section, and submit by fax to 414-359-1074 or U.S. mail to Alliance for Strong Families and Communities; 648 N. Plankinton Ave., Suite 425; Milwaukee, WI 53203.

Tribute Gifts

By checking the corresponding box on the Alliance’s donation form, donors can pay tribute to a friend, relative, or colleague with an:

  • Honorary Gift. Donations to the Alliance may be the most appropriate way to celebrate a special occasion or to honor the accomplishments of an individual close to the donor or donor’s family. Please consider making this meaningful gift.
     
  • Memorial Gift. The death of a family member or friend is a fitting time for remembrance, reflection, and recognition. Donors can make a gift to the Alliance that will stand as a memorial to a loved one and, at the same time, support the Alliance in a meaningful way.

The Alliance will notify a party of the donor’s choosing to make them aware of gifts made in tribute, but the amount of the gift remains confidential.
