Matching Gifts: Double the Donation

Donors to the Foundation can double or even triple their donations through an employer’s Matching Gift program to help in our race against the clock to find forever families for children waiting in foster care.

Organizations and foundations use various procedures by which employees can request matching gifts: online forms, payroll deductions or paper forms. Search for your organization in the Double the Donation window to see if your employer will match your contribution to the Foundation.

If your organization uses a paper matching gift form, please complete the employee portion of the form, and send it to the Foundation at the below address. We are happy to complete the workplace portion of the form for you!

Don’t see your employer? Email Director, Development Lisa Rovner at or call 614-764-6858 to discuss how to make a match ask to your organization. Thank you for helping to make the dream of a loving, forever family come true for every child.

Workplace Giving: Independent Payroll Deduction for Businesses

Payroll deduction is one of the best ways for organizations to maximize donations to causes they support. Following a campaign launch, individuals can spread their contribution out into smaller, manageable amounts taken directly from their paychecks throughout the year.

Any employer can use our payroll deduction toolkit below — offering step-by-step directions, sample communications, a payroll deduction pledge form and more to help a member of your organization to launch a workplace giving campaign and set up a payroll deduction program benefitting the Foundation.

Questions on how to get started? Please contact Director, Development, Lisa Rovner at or 614-764-6858.
