Matching Gifts

For charitable organizations and individual donors alike, matching gift programs are an excellent means of maximizing the benefit of charitable giving. For employees, finding such information is often as simple as contacting the human resources department.

Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift!

If you are interested in providing a matching gift to the Christ Child Society, but need some assistance, please contact our Director of Fundraising at 414-313-0232 who will gladly assist you in the endeavor.
