How to Request Matching Gifts

An employee matching gift program is an easy way to double your contribution to your favorite fund with The Community Foundation of Frederick County. To start the matching gift process, please do the following steps:

  1. Check with your employer’s human resources office to see if they support matching gifts.
  2. Then, you, the donor, must electronically submit a form through your employer or request a paper form from your HR/personnel office. Although many employers offer matching gift programs, each company is different, so it is important to check your company’s guidelines. Then, fill out your electronic or paper form and send it in with your gift.
  3. If you are required to provide your employer with an Employer Identification Number (EIN), The Community Foundation of Frederick County’s number is 52-1488711.

If you have any questions about this process or would like additional information, please contact our Philanthropic Services Department by calling 301.695.7660 and speak with Laura McCullough, director of Philanthropic Services, or Becki DeLauter, philanthropic services manager.
