Many corporations — around 65% of Fortune 500 companies — offer matching gift programs, where they match employees' giving to eligible nonprofits. With matching gifts, your organization can maximize your constituents' giving with essentially free additional gifts.
Tip: OK, nothing's totally free. To get the most out of matching gifts requires some extra legwork. For examples and recommendations, see Matching Gifts Best Practices.
Under Giving on a constituent's record, you can view the summary of the amounts pledged and received through matching gifts based on their giving. This recognition helps indicate the constituent’s impact through their employer’s matching gift program.

On the record of the corporation’s matching gift pledge, you can view details about their payments toward the commitment under Pledge payments. For each payment, you can view how much (and when) they matched and how much was left to pay (if any).

From a constituent's record, you can select whether an organization relationship matches their gifts and at what percentage. You can also set business rules to automatically credit constituents for matching gifts received due to their giving.
