Getting Started: Hosted Matching Gift Page

Overview of Your Hosted Matching Gift Page

We recommend that you embed Double the Donation's matching gift plugin directly on your own website so your donors can access the matching gift forms, guidelines, and instructions that they need directly on your own website.

But we also include an option to host a matching gift page with your organization's information and Double the Donation's database on a page you can easily set up on Double the Donation's website! This hosted matching gift page is hosted on a URL on Double the Donation's website and you can link to it in your broad communications and fundraising to your donors. 

This will enable you to grow your revenue by quickly get started with providing your donors with the matching gift forms and instructions they need to submit matching gifts.
