Workplace Matching Gifts
Did you know that your gift to the Cancer Support Community Valley/Ventura/Santa Barbara could be matched dollar for dollar by your employer? Many employers sponsor matching gift programs to encourage philanthropy among their employees and will match any charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees, retirees and/or employees’ spouses.
Corporate matching gifts are a great way for Cancer Support Community VVSB donors to maximize personal contributions to the organization and increase the impact of their gift. By taking advantage of a company’s matching gift benefit, you may be able to double or even triple the amount of a contribution. Contributions of any amount help us.
How do I get my gift matched?
- Check with your company’s Human Resources department to see if your company offers a matching gift program.
- If your company does not offer a matching gift program, we urge you to inquire through your company’s HR department about starting a matching gift program.
Each company has its own guidelines for employees, spouses, retirees, and even widows/widowers. If your employer offers this program, your Human Resources department should provide you with information and instructions to complete a Matching Gift request. Some companies have an online portal and others will give you a form to fill out and send to the receiving organization. Completed forms should be mailed with your personal gift to:
Cancer Support Community VVSB
Attn: Matching Gifts
530 Hampshire Road
Westlake Village, CA 91360

Workplace Giving (non-government employees)
Many companies offer giving programs (e.g., United Way) that make giving easy. Please check with your company for information on how to designate CSCVVSB as your charity of choice.
