What is a matching gift and how do companies match donations?
A matching gift is part of a company’s philanthropic initiatives that reward charitable donations. It occurs when an employee donates to a non-profit organization and the employer will also donate to that organization, most often dollar for dollar. Companies will sometimes also match donations made by spouses, retirees, and board members. MSF supporters can request a matching gift from their employers online, by email, or via payroll giving by following the below instructions (conditions and criteria for gift matching vary by employer). MSF-USA is happy to confirm your gift or to satisfy any other requirements your company may have.
Doctors Without Borders may not accept matching gifts from all employers due to our Corporate Gift Acceptance Policy. We’ll reach out and let you know if the match cannot be completed.
Are matching gifts tax deductible (company and individual)?
Yes, matching gifts are tax deductible for company and individual donations.

What if I already donated before I learned about the matching program?
No problem. If you recently donated online, by mail, or phone, your employer may still match your gift to Doctors Without Borders. Give us a call at 212.763.5745 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Set up payroll giving
Many companies will also let you set up automatic, tax-deductible donations from your paycheck. It’s a no-fuss way to donate, and it gives our teams the reliable support they need to be ready at a moment’s notice.
Ask your company’s human resources department how you can support our work through payroll deductions.
