Matching Gifts


Many employers will match your donation to TECA. Check with your company’s human resources department to see if they have, or are willing to start, a matching gifts program. If they do, please let us know at the time of your donation.

 

If you own a company and do not offer matching gifts to your employees, you may want to consider adding this benefit as an option to help support causes your employees care about.
