Employees want to work for companies that support the causes they care about, and consumers want to purchase goods and services from philanthropically engaged companies. Businesses see benefits from being great corporate citizens. Last year, corporations in the United States donated more than $17.77 billion to nonprofit organizations.
65% of Fortune 500 companies and many other smaller companies match employee donations to a wide range of nonprofits.
An estimated $6-$10 billion in matching gift funds goes unclaimed per year because donors are unaware of their employer’s, or their spouse’s employer’s, matching gift program.
