Matching gifts are a type of giving program that is set up by companies and corporations as an employee benefit. After an employee donates to a nonprofit, they can submit a matching gift request to their employer and the company will make an additional donation to that nonprofit.

In addition, some employers will provide matching gifts based on volunteer hours where the employee volunteers and the employer contributes by sending a set amount, typically per hour, to the charitable organization.
