Matching Gifts

What Are Matching Gifts?

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees, at no additional cost to you.

If your company offers a matching gift program, then the impact of your gift may be doubled.


  1. Ask your personnel office if your business has a matching gift program.
  2. If so, ask the office for a matching gift form and fill out the information.
  3. Mail the form to:

Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund
Attn: Kathy Denworth, Office Administrator
P.O. Box 952o
Rancho Santa Fe, CA 92067

If you have any questions, please contact at by phone at (858) 759-9948 or by email at


Why make a gift of stock?

Making a gift of stock, or other securities, such as bonds or mutual funds gift is one of the most advantageous ways to contribute to FCDF. The total value of your gift is tax-deductible provided it has been held for at least one year, and there is no obligation to pay any capital gains tax on the appreciated value. The gift is fully deductible as of the date it arrives in our account.
