Corporate Matching Gifts

Allow your generous tax-deductible gift to be doubled or even tripled with the help of a corporate match.

A matching gift program directs a company to contribute to an organization that an individual employee supports. Check with your benefits manager or Human Resources department for matching policies and restrictions.  Sometimes gifts by retirees, members of the board of directors, and spouses are also eligible.

To have your gift matched, complete and sign your company application and mail it with your donation payment to the Florentine Opera.  Your gift will be listed in our donor listings at the combined level of your donation and the matching gift, for the period of one year, and your employer will be recognized among our matching gift companies in donor listings.

Companies listed below are known to match employee gifts.  Check with your benefits manager or Human Resources department for matching policies and restrictions.  Sometimes gifts by retirees, members of the board of directors, and spouses are also eligible.
