YES – they are important contributions! Matching gifts are an easy, effective way to support your fundraising effort. Actively encourage your donors to submit matching gift requests to leverage your fundraising. And ask them to submit them quickly to ensure the matching gifts are processed, approved and arrive before the October 1, 2019 fundraising deadline.
DONORS: Please visit our Employer Matching Gifts Page
to see if your employer will match your donation. Ask your HR rep or your employer’s Matching Gifts rep to submit the gift verification to VeloSano/Cleveland Clinic. Please indicate that the matching gift is for VeloSano, tax ID number is 34-0714585. Once we receive the matching gift, we’ll credit the participant’s fundraising total. Please note the time it takes for VeloSano to receive the actual gift varies depending on your company. Some companies will send the money within a couple weeks of your request, while others take months to send the money. Please process matching gifts on a timely basis.
NOTE: If your company does not match gifts until after the October 1, 2019 fundraising deadline, notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org
. It’s possible that these funds will not be received prior to the distribution of VeloSano dollars to advance cancer research at Cleveland Clinic and therefore cannot be credited until VeloSano 7 in 2020.
