Many Canadian companies encourage charitable giving by matching charitable gifts made by current employees, retirees as well as spouses and widows or widowers of employees.
The majority of matching gift companies match gifts on a 1:1 basis, however there are some with matching ratios as high as 3:1. Matching gift programs typically include minimum and maximum limits for eligible gifts as well.
The appropriate forms and guidelines can be obtained through your company’s Human Resource office. Please check with your employer to see if they will match your contribution to the Michael Garron Hospital Foundation.
