What percentage of companies offer paper matching gift forms versus electronic now?
If you've been around the matching gift world for years, you may remember the time when all companies requested that employees submit their matching gift requests with paper forms. Double the Donatione ven had a feature to help donors submit these paper forms via e-sign! But things have changed in recent years.
At Double the Donation we maintain the most comprehensive database of companies that match donations along with forms, guidelines, and instructions that donors need to submit their matching gift requests.
When we analyzed our database we found that over 93% of donors should be submitting their matching gift request forms using an electronic submission process.
Given that very few companies now accept paper forms, it's crucial that you have an electronic strategy in place to encourage your donors to submit their matching gift requests online. Double the Donation has moved away from paper forms e-sign
, and we highly recommend your organization do the same.
