As a Gap Inc. employee, there are major perks to donating your time and money to the community. For example, did you know that you can get your donations of $25 or more matched to eligible nonprofit organizations? Don’t miss out! Keep reading to learn about all the perks that may be available to you.
Pssst: To take advantage of giving programs, you must have been a Gap Inc. employees for one full year.
We'll match your donations dollar for dollar, up to your annual limit. To consolidate payments, we pay out matches (and new donations) at the end of each quarter.
You can make a donation by credit card or Paypal right now, or can report a donation you’ve made in the past (but not before you were a Gap Inc. employee for one year), and get it matched.
The programs follows a “use it or lose it” system, with these annual allocation for each employee:
A few more details about this matching gift program:
- The donation matching benefit is for Gap Inc. employees only and we cannot match any donations you may have raised from your friends, family, customers, or other people not employed by Gap Inc.
- If you and your team raise more than $25 together, you may submit the total donation to be matched on behalf of your team, as long as all the money raised came from Gap Inc. employees.
- The match request that you submit on behalf of your Gap Inc. team will count against your personal annual match allocation.
– We can only match true donations, and not those for which goods or services were received. For example, we cannot match fees paid for raffle prizes, tickets to fundraising events, school tuition, etc.
– We have a set amount of community giving cash in our account each quarter. If funds aren’t available to match your donation or volunteer hours in a certain quarter, check back the following quarter. You have 120 days to apply for the cash match from the time you give your donation or complete your volunteer service.
