The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.
Many companies encourage philanthropic interest among their employees by offering a matching gifts program. This type of program maximizes your donation and its impact. Typically, a company offers to "match" your donated amount, doubling its amount and effect. Some employers match at 50% of what you give, and some at 300%. Whatever the policy, matching gifts or matching donation programs increase your gift with minimal effort-often you simply need to fill out a form! Your employer’s willingness and ability to give can assist The Salvation Army in continuing its necessary programs for people in need.
To participate, please contact your company’s Human Resources department to determine if your employer matches gifts to The Salvation Army. This is an easy and effective way to double or even triple your contribution to The Salvation Army. For more information, please contact Lisa G.
