Make Your Tithing Go Further with Company Matching Gifts
Nationwide, more than 5,000 companies and organizations support their employees and retirees with matching gifts. Employee Matching Gifts are donations an employer makes to match its employees’ charitable contributions. As 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations, both St. Raphael School and St. Raphael Parish are eligible for matching gifts.
There is a list of companies with matching gift programs maintained by the Archdiocese of Louisville, however it is in no way exhaustive. We encourage donors to inquire if your company has a matching gift program. With a matching gift, your contribution to St. Raphael could be doubled, or even tripled! While some gift programs may not support religious affiliations (such as the St. Raphael Parish), these same programs will often allow for donations to a Catholic school, based on the educational nature of the institution.
Requests for matching gifts can often be handled online or with the completion of a simple form. The process is usually very easy – just ask your employer. Your personal donations to St. Raphael are tax-deductible within the full-extent of the law.
Please personally check to see if your employer matches charitable gifts and double your donation!
