How do I request a matching gift?
Requesting a matching gift is normally a five-minute process that must be initiated by the donor. You can do this by filling out and submitting a paper match form provided by your employer or through an electronic submission process. Please search our database for company-specific information.
What if I forget to submit my matching gift request?
If you forget to submit your matching gift after selecting your company at the time of donation, you will receive emails prompting you to submit your match. The majority of companies offer an electronic matching gift submission process.
Are matching gifts tax deductible?
While your donation to Lighthouse is tax-deductible, your matching gift is not. Only your contributions directly made to Lighthouse are eligible for tax deduction.
