What Is a Matching Gift Program?
It is a program that is a part of most companies' contribution policies that allow the company to contribute financially to nonprofit organizations that their employees support.

How Does It Work?
When an employee contributes to a qualified nonprofit organization, the company matches that contribution, sometimes doubling or even tripling it. For example, if you give $50 to ICA Food Shelf, your employer may donate $50 or $100 to NPH USA.

How Do I Find Out If My Employer Has A Matching Gift Program?
Ask your Human Resources representative or supervisor if you have a Matching Gift Program. If you do not, please encourage them to participate! Please note: Corporate matching programs sometimes match only gifts to specific charities.

Look below for our top matching companies to see if yours is listed.

Who Can Participate?
Employees, retirees, spouses and their immediate family members may participate. If a company with a Matching Gift Program employs you, your spouse or your children, each of your gifts to ICA Food Shelf may qualify for a matching gift. You may also be able to participate if you or your spouse are receiving benefits under a company pension plan.

How Do I Get Started?

  1. Ask your employer for a contribution/matching gift  form.
  2. Complete and sign the form.
  3. Send your check and form to our main office (12990 St. Davids Rd, Minnetonka, MN 55305)
