Matching Gifts

You can double — or even triple — the impact of your donation to True Friends with a matching gift from your employer. Employer matching gifts are a simple way to maximize your donation to provide more resources for people with disabilities.

Matching your donation is easy! Here is a list of companies who match employee donations to non-profits. It is not comprehensive, so if you don’t see your workplace listed, we encourage you to contact your human resources or business office for more information.

Most companies will require you to complete and return a form that may require True Friends’ tax identification number: 41-1543013.

If your employer does offer a matching gift, please send your completed form to:
True Friends
10509 108th Street NW
Annandale MN 55302
