Donation Matching Statistics
Approximately 11% of donations to nonprofits worldwide are the result of gift matching programs designed to double the impact of employee giving. Organizations that match gifts not only help provide necessary funding for important programs around the world but can also play a role in fostering work environments that promote giving. 84% of survey participants say they’re more likely to donate if a match is offered, while 1 in 3 donors say they would increase their gift if matching is applied to their donation.

If your organization does not offer a donation matching program, there’s a chance your competitors do. 65% of Fortune 500 companies offer matching gift programs. These companies employ more than 26 million individuals. (Source: Double the Donation’s Review of Fortune 500 Companies)
