Corporate Matching Gifts

Archbishop Blair meeting with Foodshare

Every year, several local companies give generously to the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal through matching gift programs. By matching, businesses are assured that their charitable resources support causes that are important to their employees. The impact of your gift to the appeal may be doubled by the generosity of a company matching gift.

As some matching gift companies do not match to religious organizations, they will match funds if restricted for non-religious purposes such as outreach efforts in the broader community as well as to Catholic Charities or Tuition Assistance. Refer to the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal Brochure for appeal allocations (Catholic Charities and Other Good Works of the Church, Emergency Assistance Fund and Malta House of Care, Tuition Assistance and Vicariate Outreach Programs). Or refer to the Appeal Vicariate Outreach Recipients flyer which outlines all the recipients awarded appeal money for their good works in the community.

Please inquire about Matching Gift opportunities with your employer to enhance the value of your gift and learn of their requirement eligibility to the matching fund program. Please contact your Human Resource Department for a matching gift application that can be mailed with the pledge card you received. If you do not have a pledge card, please print this downloadable pledge form. Lastly, please fill out the application and your pledge card completely and return both to:

Archbishop’s Annual Appeal

  • P.O. Box 28
  • Hartford, CT 06141
  • (Check made payable to Archbishop’s Annual Appeal)

If you are making your matching gift request via your employer’s online web connection please follow their procedures and note your matching gift intentions on your pledge card.
