The IDA can process and accept matching gifts from businesses when a donor has made an eligible donation. Each company has their own rules and procedures for processing these donations. Employees or businesses that would like to make eligible gifts should contact the appropriate person at their place of employment for details on how to proceed. After a matching gift has been initiated, we will let the IDA know that a matching donation will be arriving and ask the company to reference the project title if possible somewhere on the check or accompanying letter. Some companies can take up to several months to process matching gift donations.
