Does your employer offer employee match?

Every donation has the power to make a difference. Want to make your donation go even further? 

Many companies offer an employee match program in which they match an employee’s charitable gift one-to-one. (Some even have a two-to-one or three-to-one matching program!) Why? It’s offered as a benefit to encourage and reward giving among their staff.

Here’s how you can find out if your company offers this benefit:

Use the search tool at Charity Navigator or ask your company’s HR department to find out. 

They’ll usually have a form you need to fill out and submit, either to them or to us, so we can receive a matching gift from them.

You can donate to Wordcrafters online with a credit card, or by mail with a check payable to to Wordcrafters in Eugene mailed to 438 Charnelton St., Ste 101, Eugene OR 97401.

More awesome news! When you make a donation, you are now eligible for Oregon’s Cultural Tax Credit*, where you can “double your gifts for free” by making a matching gift to the Cultural Trust and claiming a cultural tax credit!

*The cultural tax credit is generous: up to $500 for individuals, $1,000 for couples filing jointly. The benefits of cultural giving present you with tax savings that really add up: 1) a bottom-line deduction on your state taxes to donations made to the Oregon Cultural Trust through this program; and 2) non-profit gift deductions for both state and federal taxes. (Note: A tax credit reduces what you owe the State of Oregon, and is much greater savings than a deduction, which only reduces the income on which you are taxed.) To ensure your tax-credit and deductions, make your gift to the Trust by December 31st.
