Matching Gifts

An employer matching gift is one of the easiest ways to increase the impact of your gift. Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please email or contact your HR department.

To have your gift matched:

1. Check with your Human Resources department to find out if your company has a matching gift programs

2. If your gift is eligible to be matched, obtain a matching gift form from your employer. Any paper forms requiring signature can be sent to the Foundation's National Processing Center: 

Crohn's & Colitis Foundation
Matching Gifts Department
733 Third Avenue, Suite 510
New York, NY 10017

3. Email Carly Presnell at to inform the local chapter staff that you plan on getting your donation matched. 

4. Once the Foundation receives your matching gifts form from your employer, we will process and return it to the appropriate organization or individual who will then send us a check for the specific amount. Please note that employer matched funds will be distributed to our organization based on their disbursement schedule.

Employee spouse and retiree gifts are often eligible for matching gifts as well. Every bit of support makes a tremendous impact on our patients.
