Matching Gifts

Matching Gifts provide you with an easy way to potentially double, if not triple, your original donation! Many organizations supplement their employees’ contributions to some organizations (specifications of the match vary based upon each organization). Your company, your spouses’ company, or even a company you are retired from may match your gift. The Hertz Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
