1. What is a matching gift?
A company makes a matching gift when an employee has made a donation to a non-profit organization and applies for their company to match their gift to that same organization. Most companies match charitable contributions at an equal amount and sometimes greater. A matching gift is a great way for a donor to increase their contribution to support Saint Vincent de Paul Catholic School.
2. How do I know if a company will offer a matching gift for a donation?
Please click on Companies that Match to see the list of U.S. Companies that match. If you do not see your company’s name, but know they match please contact Carol Barman, Advancement Director to add them to the list.
3. How does a donor apply for a matching gift?
To make a matching gift, please contact or obtain the specific instructions for your company’s matching gifts process. Fill out the necessary paperwork and if they need specific school information to process please contact our Advancement Director at (801) 527-2043 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Different organizations have different requirements and procedures, so please look up each company individually.
4. Can a donor mail the matching gift form to Saint Vincent’s School?
Yes. The form can be mailed in or faxed in. Our tax ID # is 87-0262955.

5. Does the company always match an employee’s charitable gift?
Not always. The request must meet the minimum requirements of the company’s matching gift policy. Many companies do not match gifts of part-time employees and some company’s do not donate to religious organizations. It is best to contact your company on their specific restrictions.
