Double Your Donation
By Karen Bailey
Do you wish that your funds for freedom could double or triple? There is a way for this to happen when donating to the Institute for Justice! Thousands of companies offer employees and/or retirees and their spouses the option of increasing their personal, tax-deductible donations through matching gift programs. Through a new on-line database, the Institute for Justice provides easy access to this information for our current and prospective donors.
IJ’s new matching gifts page will allow you to access almost 8,000 company programs on our “Donations” page. Simply typing in your company’s name allows you to see gift-giving ratios, minimum/maximum gifts and the instructions on how to use your company’s matching-gift program. Even if you have already provided your annual donation, it may not be too late–some companies will match your gift well after the date on which your generous contribution is received by the Institute for Justice.
As always, the Institute for Justice development team will assist you and answer any questions you may have. After completing the matching-gift form provided by your employer, simply send it to us, and we’ll do the rest!
