Matching gifts increase the impact of gifts from your employees and support the mission and life-saving work of the Red Cross.

Matching Grants for Employee Volunteering

Motivate your employees to volunteer with the American Red Cross Los Angeles Region by matching hours served with a financial donation from your company. A matching grant for employee volunteering, also known as a dollars for doers program, acts as an alternative to a matching gift program for employees who are able to donate time but not money. It also motivates employees to engage more deeply in the community through volunteer work.

An estimated 60 percent of mid- and large-size businesses currently maintain programs to provide grants for employee volunteering, and the number is expected to reach 75 percent within a year or two. To find out more about how you can set up a matching grant for employee volunteering with the Red Cross, contact our corporate partnerships team for more information.

Cause Marketing

An American Red Cross Cause Marketing program enables our corporate partners to utilize the American Red Cross brand to raise funds for people who need it the most, the same time, partnres may generate loyalty, attention and patronage from consumers, employees, investors and opinion leaders for their own brand. Cause Marketing programs are as individually unique as the corporations themselves and can take on many shapes and sizes. At the American Red Cross, our team of corporate relationship managers and marketing professionals will brainstorm with you to create the perfect campaign for your organization. Please contact our corporate partnership team for more information.
