My company does not match employee donations to Children’s Literacy Initiative. Is there anything I can do?

Yes. If your company does not currently match employee donations to CLI, ask it to do so. Together, you and your employer can help advance literacy outcomes for Black and Latinx children.

How do I submit a match for a donation I’ve made online?

As you’re making an online gift to CLI, you will be prompted to search for your company’s matching gift program. If your company has a qualifying program, you will see a notification that you may be able to double your donation before you make your contribution.
After receiving a thank you email and donation receipt, you will receive a subsequent email with detailed links to your company’s matching gift portal and step-by-step instructions for submitting a matching gift request for CLI.
