How sponsors raised an additional $329,000 for CFCA in 2011

Last week we mentioned employer charitable matching gifts and how they work. In 2011 these matching gifts raised an additional $329,000 for CFCA.

This guest post is from CFCA sponsor and volunteer Paula Kiger, who participates in her employerís matching gift program and shares how easy it is for her to double her donation to CFCA each year.

Less than five minutes a month.

That’s how long it takes to double my contribution to CFCA by participating in my employer’s charitable matching gifts program.
