What is a Matching Gift?  

A matching gift is a charitable donation from an organization or corporation that "matches" their employee’s donation to an eligible nonprofit organization, most often dollar for dollar. Some will even donate based on your volunteer hours to Main Line Animal Rescue! Thousands of national and international companies offer matching gift programs to their employees as part of their corporate philanthropic goals. This means millions of individuals are eligible to participate in a matching gift program - this could include you! Your $100 donations to MLAR can easily become a $200 contribution.
