How do I request a matching gift or volunteer grant?
Requesting a matching gift or volunteer grant is normally a five minute process which must be initiated by the donor / volunteer. You can do this by filling out and submitting a paper match form provided by your employer or through an electronic submission process. Please search our database for company specific information.
How do I submit a matching gift?
- Make a donation to a nonprofit.
- Log into your company’s matching gift submission website (if you use the Double the Donation search tool, you will receive a follow-up email linking to this page).
- Once logged in, search for the nonprofit that you donated to.
- Select the appropriate nonprofit from the search result. If it is not found, manually enter the organization’s details.
- Register the donation.
- Submit the completed matching gift request to your employer.
What if I submit my matching gift or volunteer grant outside of the nonprofit’s online donation form or dedicated matching gifts page?
If you submit your matching gift or volunteer grant outside of the nonprofit’s online donation form or dedicated matching gifts page, contact the nonprofit directly to notify them of the request, so they may track the matching funds as needed.
Are matching gifts and volunteer grants tax-deductible?
While your donation to a 501(c)3 organization is tax-deductible, your matching gift is not tax-deductible. Only your personal contributions are eligible for tax-deduction. Each party involved (yourself and your employer) can only take deductions for contributions they directly made to the nonprofit.
What if I still have questions?
For questions regarding your company’s programs, please contact your employer’s HR or community giving department. Much of the necessary information is also available on your company intranet. For questions regarding submitting a matching gift or volunteer grant request to us, please contact us using the information provided on this page.
What are the three aspects of each CEON Foundation scholarship award?
Mentoring: Many awardees will be the first one from their family to attend college. They will likely not have been exposed to the role business networking plays in their career. It is unlikely that they will have business executives as role models. They are also unlikely to have the connections that lead to paid career related internships, which can provide financial support and an advance pipeline for future jobs.
Each awardee will have a CEO Netweaver Member as a mentor. They are expected to interact monthly, and in-person when the student returns for breaks. The mentors role is to help the student lift themselves into a successful career. The path will include inspiration, awareness and helpful connections.
Financial: Students with full or major scholarships still have other cash needs for incidental expenses. Since their family is frequently unable to provide that funding they end up working one or two jobs. We want to help them focus on all aspects of the university experience — to fully participate in academic and network building opportunities.
Cash award of $2,500 – $7,500 annually, based on a combination of student need and funds available in the scholarship fund. The amount of the award will be determined and announced during the fall, while the student is at school and becoming aware of their actual needs. Advance awareness of the award will hopefully allow them to plan accordingly. Disbursement will begin in January of each year. The Mentor will decide the pace and purpose of disbursements.
Participation in CEO Netweaver events: Exposure to business environments and issue discussions, to the benefits of a Pay-It-Forward culture and to the opportunity to get to know established leaders are all invaluable to anyone beginning their career.
Scholarship awardees will be invited to participate in CEO Netweaver events for all of these reasons.
How does the application process work?
The Ron Clark Academy (RCA) has been chosen as our partner for applications. They have their own extensive interview process and relationship with both students and their families. They also have an alumni department that tracks the students through high school and beyond, and are aware of scholarship awards as they happen.
They will notify RCA alumni students about our scholarship and partnership along with our qualification criteria and forward the application to them for completion and submission. Our Scholarship Committee will make the final decisions, and have the Ron Clark Academy as a resource for additional information about students we are considering.
The Scholarship Program Committee within our CEON Foundation will review the applications and select the winners.
