Corporate Donation Matching

Corporate Donation Matching Example.gif

Double the Donation helps nonprofits double the impact of contributions by streamlining the gift match process, saving valuable time for you and your donors. While thousands of companies have a matching gifts program, many of employees’ gifts go unmatched because the employee is unfamiliar with the policy. 

There is no fee to create and tie your Double the Donation account to GiveSmart Fundraise. Double the Donations is a third-party integration with your GiveSmart Fundraise account, so to see and discuss their pricing structures and a full list of features, you will have to contact Double the Donation directly.

Adding Matching Gifts to Donation Forms

Once you've connected your GiveSmart Fundraise account to Double the Donation you are ready to start taking matching donations. The function is automatically added to your Donation forms immediately after Suggested Amounts.

There is really nothing else that needs to be done to start taking advantage of this feature. The information below is included only if you want to reword the messages, etc.

Matching Donations Design


Changing Matching Gift Settings

If you decide not to use Matching Donations on one specific form, you can just turn the Show/Hide switch on the Match Donation Checkbox to Hide.

If you wish to change the wording of the Checkbox, you can click on the edit icon and change the Display Label, which is what will appear on the form itself.

By default, the status is left Unchecked. 

One of the few reasons you may wish to switch the status to Checked is if this form is marketed specifically as a Corporate Matching Donation form, so your supporters are explicitly looking for the feature. Otherwise, the best practice is to leave it Unchecked, so they have the option, but it doesn't appear as if it is required for them to donate.

Edit Matching Checkbox

When your donor checks the box to get their company to match their donation, you can change what appears on the line asking them to type in their company name.

We recommend leaving this line "As Is" since it includes the actual instructions on what they need to do.

Edit Company Lookup


The entry for the Company Name is hidden by default using a Dynamic Action. For more on Dynamic actions, click here. Maybe you would like to include more when they check the Match Donation box, such as a picture or video or something else. If so, add that item or items using Add Form Elements, then include them in the Dynamic Actions for the Match Donation checkbox.

In case you make a mistake, here is the default setting for this dynamic action:

Note: One of the needs of the Matching Donations is to have an email address. Therefore, when you are using the Matching Donations feature, the Email Address will be required and you will not be able to change that option in the Contact Information section.

Matching Gift Reporting

When matching gifts are enabled on a form, all matched and unmatched donations placed on that form will create transaction line item in the transaction report when Matching Donations is selected.  

If donor checked the box for a matching donation, a '1' will appear in the Match Donation column with the company name listed in the Matching Company column.  If the Match Donation field has a '0' and the Matching Company fields is blank, this indicates the donor placed a donation but did not check the box to make it a matching donation.
