Take Five Minutes to See if Your Company will Match Your Donation to Our Nonprofit?     

Did you know that companies such as Microsoft, Verizon, General Electric, and many others match donations (view more examples at https://doublethedonation.com/matching-grant-resources/list-matching-gifts-companies/) from employees to our nonprofit?

From now until December 15th, 2015 you can go to https://doublethedonation.com/giving-tuesday/ to find out if your company will match your donation.
