Let Your Donors Know Their Employers Will Match Their Gifts
It’s no fun being kept in the dark. Shine some light on employer matching gift opportunities for your donors and watch your matching gift donations rise.
Incredibly, an estimated $6-10 billion in corporate matching funds go unclaimed each year. Imagine the impact if your organization had access to more matching gift revenue. Tension can help you connect with more matching gift dollars while beefing up your donor data.
Easy as 1, 2, 3…
Working with a trusted partner, Tension will append employer data to a database of your existing donors. This file will be compared to a list of employers who are known to match employee gifts.
As a result, you’ll receive a list of donors currently employed by companies who will match their charitable contributions.
Tension can then handle the production, printing and mailing of a personalized direct mail appeal that includes the matching gift forms of each respective donor’s employer along with a convenient return envelope.
A Streamlined Process
With one point of contact managing the entire process, Gift Lift is as simple as it is effective. Busy development teams need uncomplicated programs that deliver results.
