Employer Matching Gifts
Do you wish you could make your gift dollars go further? Well, you can do that if your company is one of many that will match employee contributions to Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens. Corporate matching gift programs give employees an opportunity to increase the impact of their gifts by doubling or even tripling their tax-deductible donations.
You may also combine your company's matching gift with your personal contribution, moving you to a higher donor level. Just check the applicable box on the gift form.
How Do I Apply for a Matching Gift?
1. If your company has a matching gift program, please obtain a matching gift form from your company’s human resources office.
2. Fill in the Employee Section of the form, sign the form and send it to us along with your donation. If you have already made your donation this year, simply complete the employee section and mail it to:
Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens
Attn: Development Department
714 North Portage Path
Akron, OH 44303
3. Once we receive your form, we will complete the remaining sections and mail it to your employer’s matching gift office for processing. Your company will send its matching gift donation directly to Stan Hywet.

Some companies disburse matching gifts on a quarterly or annual schedule. To reduce administrative costs, we will not forward a notice to you when we receive the matching contribution. If you have a question about your gift, please contact our development team at (330) 836-5533.
