Double Your Gift

Your Gift of Time

Make your gift of volunteer time work harder. Check with your employer to see if they will match your gift of time with a financial gift. Many companies will make a financial contribution if their employee contributes a minimum number of volunteer hours per year. Please contact your human resources department for more information and to obtain the appropriate paperwork.

3M Gives matches 20 hours per fiscal year for employees, 25 hours per fiscal year for retirees. 

Medtronic matches 25 hours per fiscal year.

Walmart Volunteerism Always Pays (VAP) program awards grants to eligible organizations where associates volunteer.

Your Gift of Money

Make your financial gift work harder by doubling it through a matching gift from your employer. Hundreds of companies will match the charitable gifts made or volunteer hours logged by their employees or retirees. Both large companies and small businesses match. Simply completing a short form from your employer’s human resources department can mean another gift to the Minnesota Academy of Science.

Please take a look at the matching gift list below for companies that allow their employees to direct charitable giving through matching gifts. If you work for one of these companies and notify them of your donation, your employer will make a matching gift to the Minnesota Academy of Science. If your company matches charitable gifts and is not listed, please contact MAS at 952-545-6789 or contact@mnmas.org to let us know, or learn more about matching gifts by contacting your employer’s human resources department.
