Many companies have a matching gift program; you give an amount and they donate the same. All you have to do is ask… Here’s how you can double or triple your impact in your community.

  1. Donate 
    Make a cash, check or credit card donation to The First Tee of the Upstate. Keep your gift receipt in case your workplace requires it. Most corporate matching programs give you up to one year to request their match on your donation.
  2. Search 
    Search by clicking here to find out if your company matches your gift. Select your regional office if you get more than one result.
    No results? You may still have a matching program. Check with your HR department to ask if your company matches employee donations.
  3. Match 
    There are two ways to submit the matching request.
    a) Download your company’s matching gift verification form using the provided link. Print it, fill it out and mail it to us.
    b) If your company provides a link to their intranet, use this to log in and submit your matching gift request to them. They’ll process this and send it to us.

Once we receive your form or online request, we’ll take care of the rest. Your company will send its matching donation directly to The First Tee of the Upstate and support will help twice (or even three times) as many people.

Thank you for increasing your impact in our community!
