Employer Matching Gifts & EFT
Corporate Matching Gifts
Many companies, large and small,* offer to match contributions made to charitable organizations by their employees.
Matching gift contributions from companies are a major source of income for KALW and can in some cases double or even triple the value of the contribution we receive from an individual donor.
Many companies also offer the opportunity for employees to make contributions to KALW through payroll deductions – a convenience for many.
Contact your HR department to find out if your company* has a matching gift program in place.
Matching Gifts – it's easy money for us, and your personal contribution to KALW can be multiplied by your simply filling out a form! Call us at (415) 841-4121 for more information.
Electronic Funds Transfer
If you currently fulfill your pledge with a monthly debit from your debit or credit card, you can save KALW money if you switch to EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer). You designate a monthly amount ($10 minimum) that will be linked directly to your checking or savings account. We'll continue to take that monthly amount until you tell us to cancel. We also save resources by not having to mail you a renewal notice! Print this simple one-page document and mail it back to us. Or, call us at (415) 841-4121 and we'll mail a form to you. Thanks!
