Does Your Company Match Your Gift or Purchase?
Getting an employer-matched gift is a simple way to have a HUGE impact on the Zoological Society’s fundraising efforts. Many corporations will match the gifts made by their employees and retirees to a qualified nonprofit organization like the Zoological Society of Milwaukee.
Because we are a nonprofit organization, your Zoo Pass or Platypus Circle membership, animal sponsorship or Annual Appeal donation qualify for matching from participating companies. Companies usually match the tax-deductible portion of your gift. The Zoological Society of Milwaukee has been fortunate to receive thousands of dollars in matching gifts.
Members and donors need to pay for their membership, sponsorship or appeal donation. We acknowledge the match from your employer as a separate contribution from the corporation. Due to corporate-giving guidelines, members and donors cannot receive any benefits from the match of their gift.
