Matching Gifts


Match-Maker, Match-Maker

Make Me a Match

Did you know that many companies have gift-matching programs that will match your donation to the Jewish Federation of CNY dollar for dollar? Gifts may include monthly payroll deductions as well as annual gifts. Gift-matching programs are a great way to maximize your personal contribution to the Jewish Federation of CNY. Don’t leave money on the table! Take advantage of your company’s matching gift benefit to increase YOUR impact for the community! 

In addition to providing greater support for the community, your matching-gift donation offers other benefits:

For employees: You will be acknowledged at the recognition level that includes your employer’s match. For example, if you make a donation of $500 to JFFS and your employer’s matching gift brings the total contribution to $1,000, you will be recognized at the $1,000 level. This would give you eligibility to attend an event that requests a minimum suggested gift of $1,000.

For employers: Donations received from employers through their matching-gift programs are fully tax-deductible.

4 Easy steps to increase your impact with a matching gift from your employer:

  1. Check with your company’s HR department to see if a Matching Gift program exists.
  2. Ask HR for a copy of the Matching Gift Form and complete your portion.
  3. Submit that form to us! Here are a few ways:

4. Make your donation! Watch it double!

Important Notes

  • Jewish Federation of Central New York is a human/social service organization.
  • The IRS does not consider the Federation to be a religious organization. As a 501(c)(3) corporation, we are required to file a 990 form, and we do so annually.
  • If your company requires an Employer Identification Number (EIN), please use 15-0543614
  • If your company offers a matching gift, the Federation will receive it only after you have made your pledge payment.
