Corporate Matching

Humanity First USA is powered by our volunteers. Your work lets us respond quickly to emergencies, feed hungry families, and grow our impact.

Did you know that thousands of companies match donations by employees to our organization?

With your matched donation we can double up on the work needed to serve mankind in America and around the world. More funding can be provided for water hand-pumps and high-quality education in Africa, Asia, and South and Central America. We can support our food distribution in the United States during these hard times. And we can expand health care and eye care to places where people need life-changing treatment.

Please use the below search tool to see if your company will match your donation and to access the forms, guidelines, and instructions that you need to submit a matching gift.

Do you volunteer with HFUSA? Some companies also offer a volunteerism match, which is a dollar amount in recognition of an employee’s volunteer hours to a nonprofit organization.


Every dollar counts for achieving our shared mission. Company employee matching gifts can turn one dollar donated by a match-eligible employee into two dollars, or more! 

What are company matching gift programs? 

Matching gift programs are a type of corporate philanthropy set up to encourage employees to give back to their communities. These companies make donations to the same nonprofits that their employees have donated to. 

Programs vary from company to company, but these elements usually shape the guidelines:

  • Match ratio: This defines what kind of donation the company will make in relation to the employee’s initial contribution. A 1:1 ratio indicates that the company will donate the exact same amount, doubling the contribution to the employee’s chosen nonprofit. 
  • Minimum and maximum: The minimum is the amount an employee must donate to qualify for a matching gift. The maximum is the total amount that a company will match per employee annually. The maximum may be different for employees that are part time, or full time, or based on their seniority.
  • Nonprofit eligibility: Some programs offer different matches based on the type of work a nonprofit does, for example, educational institutions versus cultural organizations. 
  • Deadline: Every program identifies a deadline when the matching gift request must be submitted by the employee. This deadline can be either a firm date (December 31st is common) or a threshold based on the donation date (90 days after donation is made).

The impact of these programs can be substantial! More than 18 million people work for companies with matching gift programs, and it is estimated that billions of dollars go unclaimed each year.

Thousands of companies offer matching gift programs. Employees of Merck & Co., Johnson & Johnson, The Home Depot, Schneider Electric, and many other companies big and small have made these programs work for HFUSA.
