Matching Gifts

Increase Your Impact!

With Corporate Matching Gifts

What is a matching gift?

Your company may be one of thousands that “match” employee charitable contributions with corporate dollars. Many companies also match volunteer hours or gifts from spouses, retirees, and board members. A corporate matching gift is an easy way to double, or even triple, the impact of your personal contribution to LTSC.

How do I make a matching gift?

  1. Ask your HR department about your company's matching gift policy.
  2. If your company participates, obtain a matching gift form and complete the employee portion. If your company processes matching gifts electronically, follow their instructions.
  3. Mail the completed form along with your personal donation to:

LTSC Development
231 E. Third St. # G106
Los Angeles, CA 90013
LTSC (Tax ID 95-4444102) will do the rest!
