Matching gifts are company-donated contributions that match the contributions made by their employees, thereby doubling or tripling the value of their gifts. This program enables a donor to increase the impact of their contribution to the JCCC Foundation.
To find out if your company participates in a matching gift program, contact your human resources or community relations department for a matching gift form. Then, send it along with your gift to the Foundation.
You can also request a "Double Your Dollars" brochure from the JCCC Foundation to see whether your company offers such a program. The "College or University" brochure lists more than 960 companies that match donations to higher education institutions. These companies have matching gift programs.

Planned giving -- or charitable gift planning -- refers to the process of making a charitable gift of estate assets to one or more nonprofit organizations, a gift that requires consideration and planning in light of the donor's overall estate plan.
Such gifts usually include legal documents and often require the assistance of a qualified professional advisor to complete. Because of the size and potential impact of such gifts, a donor should consult with his or her professional advisors before completing the process.
