Double Your Impact
It is important to note that matching gift processes can take several months to complete, and that each company controls the schedule on which it issues matching gift funds. Companies may issue the funds on a monthly, quarterly, or annual basis. It is important for you to familiarize yourself with each company’s matching gift policy and with the timelines of the third-party company they use to transfer funds.
Since Fred Hutch has no control over the timing of matching gifts, we encourage you to apply for your matching gift as soon as possible. It is also a good idea to use matching gifts to supplement your fundraising efforts instead of relying on them to meet your fundraising commitment. Only matching donations that we receive by September 30, 2023, will be counted toward your 2023 fundraising commitment. Matching funds received after September 30 will be gratefully accepted and put to work at Fred Hutch; however they will not be counted toward your personal fundraising total for your 2023 Obliteride.
