Corporate Gift Matching: Making Your Gift Go Further

Many companies have programs through which they will match the charitable contributions made by their employees, making your gift go further. Check with your (or your spouse’s) company’s Human Resources office to see if they offer a gift matching program. (If they don’t, you may want to ask your company to start one.) If your employer does offer this program, your Human Resources department should provide you with a matching gift form to send to Ahimsa House along with your donation.

Mail the form with your donation to:

Ahimsa House
PO Box 2173
Tucker, GA 30085

You may also send in the form after you have made the donation. We will verify receipt of your gift and return the form to your company for matching funds. The company verifies eligibility of the employee and sends a check to Ahimsa House.
