Employer matching gifts FAQ

Learn more about how you can double your impact through employer matching gifts to help us serve more families in need of safe, affordable housing.

My company does not match employee donations to Habitat for Humanity. Is there anything I can do?

Absolutely. If your company does not currently match employee donations to Habitat, ask it to do so. Together, you and your employer can help build more homes for people in need.

How do I submit a match for a donation I’ve made online?

After you make your online gift to Habitat, you will receive a thank you email with your donation receipt. On that email, look for the Find your employer search box. When you find your employer, complete the matching gift request form and submit to your Human Resources or matching gift department. Many employers will match tax-deductible charitable contributions made by their employees, retirees and employees’ spouses.

How do I match a donation I made to a local Habitat affiliate?

Please select the Habitat for Humanity affiliate name in your company’s matching gift Web registration OR if applicable, send your matching gift form to that affiliate. Habitat for Humanity International is not able to verify your original donation or process your matching gift request.

I would like my company match to go towards a specific Global Village trip. How do I do that?

Please request that your employer clearly indicate the designated GV event code and trip destination with the matching gift payment. Be advised of your company’s matching gift policies and payout dates (gifts received without proper information or after program deadlines cannot be designated).

How long will it take for Habitat to receive my company match?

Anywhere from one month to one year. Please inquire with your company about their payout dates and matching gift deadlines.
