This week’s fundraising tip: FREE MONEY ! ! ! !

June 18, 2009

ScreenHunter_02 Jun. 17 22.01Yes, you read the title of this blog post correct.  There is FREE money available for your Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.   Many companies offer matching gift programs.  Matching anywhere from $0.50 -$2.00 for every dollar their employee donates to your walk.   Remind each of your donors to check with their employer to see if matching gifts are available.  Matching gifts can double (or even triple) your donations!

Don’t depend on a matching gift to meet your donation minimum. Procedures vary significantly from company to company, and some matching gifts may take months to process. Matching gifts will not be credited to your account until the check has been received from the company.   For example, the company I work for can take 6-9 months to processes the check.

More information can be found on the Avon Walk website. Click on the link “Matching Gifts” on the left hand side of your Avon Walk webpage.
