Corporate Giving Opportunities

Companies are trying to respond to the devastation that coronavirus has had on people’s lives, whether personally or professional. Recently, at least 20 companies have expanded their matching gift programs in response to the pandemic. For example, companies like AbbVie and Apple are upping the match from 1:1 to 1:2. Nonprofits can gently remind their donors who work at these companies about the increased opportunities to double or triple their gift.

Chronicle of Philanthropy has been keeping track of corporate donations to coronavirus relief efforts. So far, LEGO Foundation and LEGO Brand Group have given the largest publicly known donation of “$50 million to Education Cannot Wait and other partners to bring play-based learning to children and families around the world who are experiencing school closures as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.” These publicly announced gifts can help fundraisers have a sense of what these companies prioritize in this time of crisis and may want to adjust their corporate fundraising strategies accordingly.
