Corporate matching contributions are a type of philanthropy where companies financially match donations that their employees make to nonprofit organizations.
When you donate, you can request a matching gift from your employer, who then makes a direct donation to the same nonprofit. Companies usually match donations at a 1:1 ratio, but some will match at a 2:1, 3:1, or even a 4:1 ratio.
