Double Your Impact with a Corporate Matching Gift

Corporate Matching Gift Programs Can Double Your Impact

Thousands of companies locally and nationally match their employee’s contributions to tax-exempt organizations, usually at a one-to-one match but sometimes as high as three-to-one. Some companies also have volunteer matches, providing a donation for each hour their employees volunteer with a charitable organization.

These programs offer individuals a wonderful opportunity to double, or even quadruple, the impact of their contribution. Unfortunately, many individuals are unaware their employer matches gifts or volunteer hours; each year 90% of donations eligible for these programs go unmatched.

To see if your donation to Freestore Foodbank is eligible for a matching gift from your employer, contact your human resources department or contact Kim Miller at 513-482-7546.

In our 2016-2017 fiscal year, Freestore Foodbank received $170,000 in matching gifts from over 70 companies, including Ameriprise, Duke Energy, GE, Johnson & Johnson, Liberty Mutual, Macy’s, The Standard and Von Lehman. We are so grateful to all the companies offering this generous benefit, and for their employees and retirees who choose to donate to Freestore Foodbank and request corporate matching gifts.

Three Simple Ways to Leave a Lasting Legacy and Change Lives

Honor your values by including Freestore Foodbank in your will or trust.

After you have provided for your loved ones, you can include Freestore Foodbank and other nonprofits you have supported during your lifetime as beneficiaries. When writing or updating your will, you can name Freestore Foodbank to receive a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your residuary estate.

Make a tax-wise gift with a beneficiary designation.

A beneficiary designation from a retirement or insurance account is another simple way to make a legacy gift to Freestore Foodbank. These gifts bypass probate and go directly to your designated beneficiaries.

  • Retirement Plans: With a simple signature on a form, you can include Freestore Foodbank as one of the recipients of your retirement plan. By doing this, you’ll spare your loved ones the required income tax that must be paid on all traditional IRA funds (not Roth IRAs). Download a beneficiary form from your retirement plan administrator’s website and add Freestore Foodbank.
  • Insurance Policies: Do you no longer need the security of life insurance that your family once required? If not, put the policy to work advancing a charitable mission you value. Designate Freestore Foodbank as one of the beneficiaries of your life insurance policy’s death benefit.

When you complete your beneficiary designation form, name Freestore Foodbank as a beneficiary and remember to include our federal taxpayer identification number: 23-7122205.

Generate annual income through a charitable gift.

You can make a gift to Freestore Foodbank and receive guaranteed fixed payments for life. With a Charitable Gift Annuity, you would transfer cash or stock to Freestore Foodbank, receiving a partial tax deduction at the time of the gift and a guaranteed stream of annual income for your lifetime. Contact us to receive a personalized proposal.
