Ways to Protect Animals: Matching Gifts



Matching gift programs unlock incredible opportunities for both charitable organizations and employees.

Matching gifts, also known as a matching donation or corporate matching gift, are charitable contributions made by a company or employer that match the donation made by an employee or sometimes even a retiree. World Animal Protection partners with Double the Donation to make it easy to find out if your company has a matching gift policy! By using our free Employer Search Tool you can find your employer’s policy and follow the provided procedure.

Matching gift programs unlock incredible opportunities for both charitable organizations and employees. By utilizing your employer’s matching gift policy, your contribution can be multiplied and create an even greater impact on the lives of animals around the world. Below are some examples of the significance of matching gifts.

Double Your Generosity

By donating to World Animal Protection, you’ve showcased your commitment to animal welfare. Imagine the difference that could be made by doubling your generosity! Many companies offer to match their employees’ charitable donations, effectively doubling the impact of your gift.

Expanding Your Reach

The additional funds provided by the company match enable World Animal Protection to expand our reach and take a larger step towards a world without cruelty and suffering. Matching gifts allow for increased resources to address the pressing needs of animals worldwide, fund critical disaster responses, and advocate for animal welfare policy changes both in the United States and internationally.

Empowering Your Peers

When you participate in your company’s matching gift program, you inspire your peers to also take action. Sharing the tangible results of matching gifts with your colleagues encourages them to contribute and engage with causes they are passionate about. (You can even share this blog post with them!)

Building a Strong Community

By leading through example, you not only create a culture of giving, but you also have the opportunity to share your “why” for supporting World Animal Protection with your colleagues. Sharing your passion for rescuing animals in need, encouraging companies to make change, or advocating for stronger laws invites your professional community into a world where animals live free from suffering and cruelty.

Your generosity is creating lasting change for animals across the globe. By combining your generosity with the power of matching gifts you unleash an unstoppable force for the betterment of all living beings.
