Matching Gifts

Maximize the value to your donation! You may be able to double or even triple your donation at no extra cost to you! Many companies and foundations match donations made to the Peace Corps. Contact your employer and make your donation go even further.

Participation is Simple

  1. Ask your employer if they support a Matching Gift Program. Peace Corps is not a 501(c)3 but can accept a matching gift under section 170(c)1 of the Internal Revenue Code.
  2. Obtain a Matching Gift form from your employer's human resources or payroll department.
  3. Complete the donor section of the form and submit it along with your donation. If you donated on-line please send it separately with a note detailing your on-line donation, to the following address:

    Peace Corps
    Office of Gifts and Grants Management
    1111 20th Street NW
    Washington, DC 20526.

  4. Peace Corps processes the form and sends it to your employer.
  5. Your employer will then send us a Matching Gift. It's that easy!
