Matching Gifts

Corporate matching gifts

Many companies support the philanthropic interests of their employees by matching employee contributions to nonprofit organizations like Ravinia. You may be able to double or even triple your gift, giving you increased benefits that come with your new giving level.

Check with your human resources department to see if your company matches gifts to arts organizations.


Did you know?

Matching gift companies only match the tax-deductible portion of your donation. You may wish to consider sending an additional gift to cover the cost of benefits to ensure you reach your desired contribution and benefits level.
