Double Your Donation by Matching Gift
Many companies offer a matching gift program whereby an employee’s and/or retiree’s gift to a charitable organization like FUTI will be matched by the company, typically by the same amount, i.e., 1 to 1 matching. Thus, if your company or former employer recognizes FUTI as an eligible organization, your donation of, for example, $500 will be become a $1,000 gift to FUTI, and it will be recognized as such (although for your income tax deduction purpose, the amount is what you personally donate).
Since FUTI is a new organization, your employer may not recognize FUTI automatically. If your employer asks for our qualification to be eligible for matching gift, here is the relevant information we would like you to provide them. FUTI’s EIN (Employer Identification Number or Federal Tax Identification Number) is 26-1186431. We were granted, effective September 27, 2007, Public Charity status under section 170 (b)(1)(A)(vi), and are tax exempt under IRS Tax Code, section 501 (c)(3).
If you take the following three steps, we will take care of the rest.
- Check with your company to see whether the company offers a matching gift program.
- If it does, ask for a “matching gift form” of the company together with its donation guideline.
- Decide how much you want to donate to FUTI. Fill out the form and mail it to the FUTI office.
We have found the following companies to have a matching gift program. If your employer and/or other companies you know of offer a matching gift program and yet are not listed below, please write to us at the FUTI address or email us. Please include the name, email and/or phone of the contact person.
