Caterpillar Founction Limited-time 2:1 Match, launching November 28th!

LIMITED-TIME 2:1 MATCH LAUNCHING NOVEMBER 28!

In support of the Caterpillar Foundation’s 70th Anniversary and Giving Tuesday, the Caterpillar Foundation will provide a limited-time 2:1 match through our Caterpillar Foundation Matching Gifts Program for global employee and U.S. retiree gifts made starting November 28 through December 12, 2022 (or once the 2:1 match total reaches $2 million USD - see details below). 

If you are interested, we recommend taking action soon after the opportunity launches the week of November 28 as this 2:1 match is on a first-come first-serve basis, and we may reach our cap quickly!

What you need to know about the limited-time 2:1 match:

  • U.S. Gift Eligibility: Gifts to most 501(c)(3) nonprofits and public/private preK-12 schools, as well as United Ways, are eligible for the 2:1 match.
  • Gift Minimum: The gift minimum to qualify is $25 USD or more.
  • Maximum Match: Each participant can enter up to $500 USD in donations in the system and the Caterpillar Foundation will match at a 2:1 ratio up to a maximum amount of $1,000 USD. This is exempt from the standard $10,000 USD Foundation annual cap.
  • Overall Program Cap: The Caterpillar Foundation will match up to $2 million USD total for gifts made during this timeframe. Once $2 million USD in match requests has been submitted, the 2:1 match will close and revert back to the standard 1:1 match with $10,000 USD annual cap per participant.
  • Gift Date Eligibility: In order for your donation to be eligible for the 2:1 match, your donation must be made to the charity starting on November 28, 2022 or later. Gifts made prior to this date are not eligible.
  • Match Request Submission Deadline: Match requests must be submitted in the Caterpillar Cares portal by December 12, 2022 at 11:59pm ET.

 

 

Matching Gifts, 1 YOU Donate, 2 THEY Match, 3 Double the Impact

An easy way to double your contribution to WTVP is through employee giving programs. Many corporations match employee donations (or the tax-deductible portion of your membership).

If you volunteer with us, your employer may also provide us with a grant as a way to recognize your ongoing support.

Please take a few minutes to see if your company offers an employee matching gift program. Matching gift dollars contribute in a substantial way to our fundraising goals each and every year.
