Employer Matching Gifts
Companies often value and reward volunteer service by their employees. If you are volunteering for Meals on Wheels, check with your employer to see if the company may offer a program to encourage volunteerism. Examples of employer support include matching volunteer service with monetary contributions to the benefitting organization or time off for volunteer service.
Many companies offer a Matching Gift Program, where the companies will match their employees'/spouses donations to a charitable organization. For instance, your gift of $100 to Meals on Wheels Programs & Services of Rockland may be matched by your employer also donating $100 to the agency.
