Double Your Impact!
Many companies will match employee donations to charities
If you have recently made, or plan to make, a donation to the Yellowstone Park Foundation, you have an opportunity to double the impact of your gift. Many companies set aside philanthropic dollars and allocate those funds through matching gift programs.
With the investment of just a little extra effort, your donation can go twice as far in helping YPF protect the wonders and wildlife of Yellowstone! And new this month, we have an easy online tool that may help you learn about and take advantage of your company's matching gift program.
To double -- or in some cases even triple -- the impact of your gift in Yellowstone, all you need to do is:
1. Find out if your employer has a matching gift program. Start by checking with your Human Resources office or use our handy online database>>
2. Follow your employer's matching gift procedure. This usually entails filling out and submitting a simple online or paper form.
3. We do the rest, and you are credited for your gift plus the matching gift!
Check here to see if your employer 's matching gift program information is in our database>>
If your employer provides a paper matching gift form to submit to us,
please send it to:
