Matching Gifts

Many St. Louis companies offer Matching Gift Programs. Jewish Federation of St. Louis is eligible for many of these programs. Companies often have certain preset requirements for matching gifts. Below is a list of how we meet these criteria:

  • Jewish Federation of St. Louis is a human and social service organization
  • Jewish Federation of St. Louis is registered with the IRS under 501(c)(3)
  • Donated monies are unrestricted

FAQ’s

My company prohibits matching gifts to religious organizations, so how can they match a gift to the Jewish Federation of St. Louis?
