Matching Gifts

You can multiply your gifts to The American Legion by participating in a matching gift program.

Help us help America’s veterans and their families by maximizing the impacy of your gift.  You can multiply your gifts to The American Legion by participating in a matching gift program.  Many companies, associations and foundations with which you may be affiliated will allow you as an employee, member or trustee, to take advantage of their philanthropic efforts.  It’s easy to participate.

In addition to matching employee’s monetary gifts to charitable organizations like The American Legion, some companies support their employee’s personal involvement in voluntary programs to qualified programs.  Therefore, if you’re a volunteer involved with The American Legion’s Voluntary Service Program, you may be able to extend the effectiveness of your volunteer efforts through your employer.

First, check with your human resources, employee benefits office or community relations office to determine if your company matches employee charitable donations and/or voluntary efforts.  If so, follow these easy steps:

  1. Request a copy of the Employee Matching Gift form.  Review the program guidelines to see in The American Legion is eligible to receive matching gifts.
  2. Fill out and sign the employee portion of the form.
  3. Send the completed form to:

American Legion Charities
ATTN: Matching Gifts
5745 Lee Rd
Indianapolis, IN 46216

The American Legion will process the form and send it back to your employer.  The company will send its matching donation directly to American Legion Charities.
