Matching Gifts

Many employers offer matching gift programs and will match the charitable contributions made by their employees. Inquire with your Human Resources Department as to whether your employer will match a tax-deductible contribution to the Fairport Baptist Homes Foundation. If your company is eligible, there may be paperwork to fill out on both sides, by you the contributor, by the employer and by the Fairport Baptist Homes Foundation. Procedures vary by employer, but the Foundation staff will assist in making the process a smooth one. Inquire today!
