Matching Gifts

Many companies offer a matching gift program to encourage giving among their employees. Matching gifts are an excellent way to maximize the impact of your gift to the Catholic Appeal. Employers will often double, and sometimes even triple, employee gifts up to a specific dollar amount. You can inquire with your company’s human resources department to find out if they would match your gift to the annual Catholic Appeal. Your HR department can also provide you with any necessary matching gift forms to complete.

And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which made a farthing. And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury. For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.

(Mark 12: 42-44)
