Matching Gifts

Double Your Impact with a Matching Gift
When helping out with a cause, you probably wish you could give more … if only you could. It actually may be easier than you imagined. Many companies and foundations offer matching gift programs — doubling the funds donated by employees, members or trustees. Your $25 donation to the American Legion Auxiliary Foundation could become a $50 contribution. Or $50, matched by your company, would turn into $100. So, as you donate to help our veterans, military and their families, find out if a matching gift program is available where you work.

It’s easy to do! Contact your human resources, employee benefits or community relations office to determine if your company matches employee charitable donations. If so, follow these steps:

1) Request a copy of the Employee Matching Gift form.
2) Review the program guidelines to see if the American Legion Auxiliary Foundation is eligible to receive matching gifts.
3) Fill out and sign the employee portion of the form.
4) Send the completed form to:
American Legion Auxiliary Foundation
8945 N. Meridian St.
Indianapolis, IN 46260

1) Submit a matching gift verification request through your company’s online portal.
2) Use the following address when filling out the nonprofit information:
American Legion Auxiliary Foundation
8945 N. Meridian St.
Indianapolis, IN 46260
