Employer Matching

Matching gift programs are extensions of corporate philanthropy, designed to be the means by which companies support employee charitable giving or volunteering of their time. Companies provide donations made by employees or donate for their volunteering to a wide range of nonprofits organizations.   

As a 501(c)(3) organization, Strategic Renewal is eligible for many matching gift programs.

Check with your Human Resources department to see if your employer has a matching gift program.  If you have any questions, please contact our financial team at
