Your employer may match your donations
Many businesses have matching gift programs to encourage their employees to support charity efforts. Agape Asia receives thousands of dollars through matching gift programs every year, including gifts from both larger, national businesses and smaller, local companies.
Even if you are retired, you may still be eligible to participate through your former employer’s matching gift program.
As a 501(c)(3) organization, Agape Asia qualifies for many matching gift programs. Here’s how you can find out if your organization will participate:
- Ask your Human Resources department to see if your company has a matching gift program.
- Provide your company with a copy of the Agape Asia/Chinese Agape tax identification number and IRS determination letter (available upon request).
- Fill out your company’s matching gift form and email it to us or mail it to:
Agape Asia Foundation
Attn: Matching Gifts
P.O. Box 4211
Chattanooga, TN 37405
We will complete the form and return it to your employer in order to receive the matching portion on your gift. In most cases we are able to verify that a company’s donation is a direct result of a particular individual’s donation. If possible, we send acknowledgment letters stating we have received your matched gift. Keep in mind that some companies make distributions quarterly or annually, so it takes some time for the donation to be matched and received and for your acknowledgment letter to be delivered.
