Matching Gifts

 

Many companies match charitable donations their employees make. This is a fantastic way to increase the impact of your gift to Fred’s Team.

Fred’s Team is owned and operated by Memorial Sloan Kettering, and our tax ID/EIN is 13-1924236.
 

STEP 1

Search for Your Employer

Enter your company name in the search tool below to find out if your employer has a matching gifts program. If your company does not come up, contact your Human Resources department directly. Your gift may still get matched!

 

STEP 2

Authorize the Match

If your company matches gifts, please follow the instructions your employer provides, or contact your Human Resources department for the appropriate form. Please note that all matching gifts to Fred's Team must be submitted under Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center using the address below.

STEP 4

Let Us Do The Rest!

Matching Gift Tips

Explore matching gift opportunities as soon as possible! It can take one to four months after you submit the initial request with your company for the check to arrive at MSK and get posted to your fundraising page. Each company controls the schedule on which it issues matching gifts. We thank you for your patience as we work as quickly as possible to process gifts upon arrival.

Does your company use Benevity? Follow these best practices!
  1. After the donation is made to the desired fundraising page on the Fred’s Team website, submit the gift to Benevity to be matched
  2. Ensure the donor name used to make the original donation matches exactly to the name in Benevity
  3. Fill out all possible fields in Benevity
  4. In order for MSK to know who made the donation, please avoid choosing to be “Anonymous” through Benevity. Rather, include a note in the notes section asking the Fred’s Team staff to post the gift as “Anonymous” once it arrives at MSK.
  5. Additional information that is helpful to include in the notes section:
    • The name of the company the donor is employed by
    • The Fred’s Team participant name or team name the gift is supporting
    • The link to the participant or team fundraising page where the donation was made
