Many companies encourage employees to make contributions to non profit organizations promoting arts and culture and public broadcasting. Please ask your employer for eligibility requirements, guidelines, and the appropriate matching gift form. Requesting a matching gift is as easy as completing the requested form from your HR contact, e.g., (name, address, date of gift, amount of gift, name of recipient organization, signature and date).
