“It means a ton to the employees that take part in our efforts to support Second Harvest. They really get to live out the value of caring for others. They feel: ‘ok, this is a small thing that I can do to help,’ but how the families respond is so humbling, and we’re grateful to get to be a part of that.” – Julie Bauer, Alliant Energy Foundation Executive Director
Many employers offer matching gift programs to encourage their employees to support charitable causes such as hunger relief. An employer may match your gift or volunteer time dollar for dollar – and sometimes by much more. It can be easy to double or even triple the value of your donation to Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin with a matching gift!
The information below answers commonly asked questions about matching gifts. For additional information, contact the Donor Relations Team at 608-216-7202.
Look for your employer’s name on the matching gift program employer list. Don’t see it? Ask your human resources department if they offer a matching gift benefit. (And if they don’t offer it at present, you might want to ask them to consider doing so).
Check with your human resources department for instructions. They may ask you to complete a paper form or apply online. Most applications only ask for your name, address, and details about your gift — it’s simple!
Please complete the form and send it along with your gift to:
Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin
2802 Dairy Drive
Madison, WI 53718
Second Harvest Foodbank completes its portion of the form and returns it to your employer, who in turn sends in the matching gift donation.
Many businesses offer this benefit to their retirees as well. Just ask.
If your spouse’s employer also offers a matching gift program, you may be able to apply for an additional match.
Many employers will still match your gift after the fact. Check with them about their requirements, or ask us to find out for you.
