Common Questions about Matching Gifts

What is a matching gift?

A matching gift is when a person donates to a non-profit organization and their employer donates an equal or greater amount to the same non-profit. A matching gift is a great way for a donor to double or even triple their contribution to help St. Jude in finding cures for childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

How do I apply for a matching gift?

To make a matching gift, first go to the Matching Gifts page and use our search tool to find your employer. If the company is in our database, select it and you will see the specific instructions for that company’s matching gifts process. Parent and subsidiary companies within organizations have different requirements and procedures, so please search for each company individually.

 Where can I see a list of all companies that match my donations to UMOM?

You can use our database to search for any company on our Matching Gifts page.

What happens if a matching gift is not approved?

If a matching gift company does not approve a matching gift, the company will contact both the employee and the organization with the reason the match was rejected.  Most often a matching gift is rejected because the donation amount isn’t within the program parameters specified by the company.

How long will it take the matching gift company to process and mail a check for the matching gift?

It varies for each company. If the matching company approves the matching gift, the company will send a check for the matching gift according to their company guidelines. You may contact the matching gift company directly to find out how often matching gift checks are processed and mailed.

 What is the deadline for having a recent gift matched?

Matching Gift guidelines are established by each company. Deadlines for submitting a matching gifts claim vary from 30 days from gift date to more than one year from the gift date. To find out the deadlines associated with your employer’s matching gifts program, please visit the Matching Gifts page.

If you are a monthly donor, please consider the specific guidelines for your employer’s matching gifts program. If you have any questions, please contact our Development Coordinator at Philanthropydonations@umom.org or by calling 602-857-8855.
