Make Your Money Go Farther - Employer Donation Matches

Employer and Company Matching
How to Make Your Dollars Go Further for Empowerment

As a small, grassroots nonprofit, every dollar we receive is precious - it becomes one more scholarship, one more student, one more padded suit to keep our Suited Instructors safe - and we recognize that not everyone is able to donate as much as they wish they could for our cause. We understand, and are glad to be able to offer a resource for turning your dollar into 2, 3, even 4 more.

Company and employer matching is a great way to get more bang for your buck. Check out some of the companies below - if your employer is not on this list, you can ask your HR representative whether an employer matching program is available (or if you can create one!).
