Other Ways to Give

Employer Matching Gifts

Many corporations match gifts their employees and retirees make to charitable institutions. Your firm’s human resources department will be able to provide instructions on submitting a matching gift to the Academy and we will be happy to administer the rest. By doing so, you could double or even triple the impact of your gift.

Volunteer Matching Gifts

Some corporations also provide grants to nonprofits where employees and retirees volunteer on a regular basis. Known as "Dollars for Doers" or "Matching Time" programs, these initiatives reward employee engagement by supporting causes they care about. To learn more about volunteer opportunities with the Academy, visit our mentoring opportunities page.

Already a volunteer? Contact your human resources department to find out if your volunteer service qualifies for a Dollars for Doers grant.
