Matching Gifts

Many local and national companies encourage generosity by matching their employees’ charitable gifts. Most of these programs match gifts dollar for dollar or more, which can double—or triple—the amount of your gift. Through a matching gift to BIDMC, you will also receive tax credit for the combined total of your personal gift and that of your employer.

 The Perfect Match

Mathcing gifts through Grateful NationWith a match through your workplace, you can make your gift twice as nice for patients and staff at BIDMC.

“Beth Israel Deaconess, like all the not-for-profit organizations I support, is very meaningful to me, and when I add a matching gift, it doubles the value—and the impact—of my donation.”—Julia Rabkin

Julia Rabkin’s employer, Bank of America, has a very generous matching gift program, and she likes to take full advantage of it. “The economic downturn has affected BIDMC like so many other charities,” she says, “so if I can double the size of my gift by requesting a match, so much the better.” Rabkin knows from experience that it takes very little time or effort to receive a match for a charitable donation, whether by filling out a matching gift form or requesting a match online. Make a single call to your Human Resources Department and our patients and staff will be thanking you twofold.

Contact your company’s human resources department to find out if your employer offers a matching gifts program. Your human resources department can provide you with the appropriate matching gift forms. Please mail your completed matching gift form to:

ATTN: Grateful Nation
Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center
330 Brookline Avenue (BR) | Boston, MA 02215


We will handle it from there! It really is that easy to double – or triple – the impact of your gift. If you have any questions, please contact us at 617-667-3345 or gratefulnation@bidmc.harvard.edu.
