FAL’s 50th Anniversary Spring Appeal has launched, and we are on well on our way to meeting our goal! Have you donated yet?

Did you know that we also apply matching gifts to help you get more perks? If your employer matches gifts, your donation to non-profit organizations like FAL can be doubled or tripled. Many organizations also match volunteer hours! 

How does the process work?

  • An employee makes the initial donation: The first step is always your initial donation. There can be no matching gift without an initial gift to match!
  • Employee submits matching gift request: this is the most crucial step.
  • Employer checks donation eligibility.
  • Employer verifies donation.
  • The organization collects the matching gift.

What can you do next?

Don’t know if your employer has a matching gifts program? Check in with your Human Resources director and they will be able to assist. FAL lists many programs on our website here.

The Fund Development Manager, Kelly Ground, is available to answer your questions. Please contact Kelly at or at (510)-210-3737.
