Golden BTD Nugget: A great tip for someone who is looking to get started with matching gift programs in general, is just start asking donors where they work.
“If you don’t ask, you don’t get. If you don’t ask, you don’t know.” - Grace Green
Grace’s Pro Tip: Especially toward year-end, remember to go back through the year and look at other donations made that could possibly be eligible for a matching gift, if the donor is able to go back and submit to their employer. This is also another way to connect with donors and keep them engaged and up to date with your mission!
