“Matching Gift” Can Double Your Donation!
Many companies offer “matching gift programs” designed to encourage their employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Typically, such programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of the employee’s gift!

Please check with your company to see if it offers a matching gift program that will increase the value of your gift. You may mail your completed matching gift form together with your check to “The Friends of the Morrill Homestead” at the address shown above.
