Did you know when you make a donation to the Philadelphia Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, you may be able to double that donation without you personally contributing one penny more?
Imagine, with a $125 donation...
... instead of funding one mammogram, you could make an impact on the lives of TWO women
... instead of funding two clinical breast exams, your could empower FOUR women with early detection*
This is what we mean by doubling your impact on the breast cancer movement, without doubling your donation. It may sound too good to be true, but it is, indeed possible, if your employer has a Matching Gift Program.
Plus, by utilizing Matching Gifts, you won't only double the monetary donation, you will also double your role in as an 'ambassador' for the Komen Promise by inspiring your employer to also contribute to the life-saving work of the Komen Philadelphia Affiliate.
So, the next time you make a donation to the Komen Philadelphia Affiliate, make a quick call to the Human Resources department at your workplace. A member of the department will be able to tell you if your employer offers a matching gift opportunity. If they do, the process to achieve the donation match typically only requires a simple form. Some programs offer to more than double your initial donation.
If you'd like, you can view a partial list of companies offering Matching Gift programs in The Affiliate's service area. But, please remember, this is a partial list only so if your employer is not listed, double-check with the H.R. department.
