Matching Donations

Did you know that you can potentially DOUBLE your fundraising? Many companies and employers have programs in place in which they will match an employee’s charitable donation toward a non-profit. When you ask your family and friends to donate, tell them to see if their employer will make a matching donation to HuskyTHON!

Matching gifts work differently depending on where the donor works, so they should contact their employers to find out exactly what they need to do. In general, the employer will provide a form to be filled out and submitted with proof of donation to an official non-profit organization. For any donation made to HuskyTHON, the donor will receive an acknowledgement and receipt to be used as proof of the donation.

Donors must make the donation directly to Connecticut Childrens’s Medical Center or Childrens’s Miracle Network Hospitals as the official non-profits. Any online donation made through the DonorDrive system will automatically receive an electronic receipt via email from Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. This is the fastest way to obtain proof of the donation. However, cash and checks are also accepted. Be sure to make all checks to Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. If you provide your email address, you will be sent an electronic receipt from Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Connecticut Children’s Medical Center will also send you an acknowledgement from the hospital in the mail.

Always be sure to thank your donors for helping to support HuskyTHON. Good luck, and happy fundraising!
