Matching Gifts

CWPT Members Multiply Donations With Employer Matching Gifts

Many CWPT members have learned how to dramatically increase the level of their support for battlefield preservation without having to make an additional donation: they take full advantage of their employer’s matching gift program.

Please see if your company is listed here as one of the ones that currently matches gifts. If not, please check with your human resources or accounting department at work to see if a matching gift program is in place, or of they would consider starting one. Usually, all that is required of you is to pick up a standard form from your employer, fill in some basic information, including the amount to be matched, and then send the form to CWPT along with your donation. We take care of it from there, and the company sends us the matching gift directly.

We greatly appreciate the generosity of those CWPT members who donate in this manner. Either annual membership dues or gifts to specific battlefield appeals may be matched, and several CWPT Color Bearers (starts at $1,000 annual membership dues) donate the first $500 and have their company match the second $500. However you care to participate, thank you for multiplying your thoughtfulness to save America’s Civil War battlefields.
