Ask about your employer's matching gift program

Each year thousands of companies offer matching gift programs to encourage philanthropy among their employees and support the causes closest to their employees’ hearts. Some even offer matches for donations by retired employees or spouses. Through these programs, donations made to nonprofit organizations like The New Children’s Museum can be doubled (or even tripled) by employers.

Matching gifts count towards your Museum benefits! For example, if you donate $500 and your employer matches with a $500 donation, you will enjoy benefits at the $1,000+ Rain House Circle level! Learn more about our donor levels.
