Matching Gifts

Multiply your tax-deductible support of the Chesapeake Bay through your employer's matching gift program. Thousands of companies match charitable contributions made by their employees—some corporations even match the donations of retired employees.

Volunteer Grants

We appreciate our volunteers’ time, and so do their employers! Some employers will provide grant money to CBF if you log your CBF volunteer hours with us. Search your employer’s name below to see if they offer volunteer grants to employees and retirees.

No luck? It's possible that your employer matches employee donations even if it's not listed here. Ask your Human Resources department to find out.

If they do match donations but aren't listed here, getting your donation matched is as easy as 1-2-3.


Use our regular donation form and be sure to keep your receipt.


Obtain a matching gift form from your Human Resources department. If your employer requires an Employer Identification Number (EIN) (i.e. Federal Tax Identification Number), please use 52-6065757.


Mail your completed form to the address below and we'll handle the rest.
