Can I get employer match funds for donations made outside of Groundswell?

If you made a charitable donation outside of the app, but you still want to receive funds from your employer's matching program, you can do so with a match request. For example, an offline match request would be useful if you were at a fundraising event and decide to write a paper check donation on the spot, rather than donate through the Groundswell app.

Please note, this function differs from how matches typically trigger on Groundswell. The standard match is activated when you contribute funds to your giving account, not when you donate funds. 


How to request a donation match

Have your donation receipt ready. In the app, navigate to Profile > Submit off platform match. Complete the prompts to submit your donation receipt. 

Match request approvals can take up to 3 business days.
