Here’s how it works: If your parent, other family member, or friend donates a sum, say $100, to your dancer account, and they work at a company that does corporate matching, that company will also donate $100 to DMUM that will go straight to your account.
All that person needs to do is fill out a matching gift form or otherwise notify the employer that a charitable donation has been made. The company will make sure DMUM is an eligible nonprofit and will then send in a check for the same amount (or sometimes higher!).
Here’s what you should do: Make sure to ask whoever is donating to you to check if their company participates in corporate matching! If the employer does participate, you could be on the fast track to smashing your fundraising goal!
