Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees.
Here's how to make a matching gift:
- Ask your Human Resources department about your company's matching gift policy.
- If your company participates, obtain a matching gift form from your employer. BC Children's Hospital Foundation charitable business number is 11885-2433-RR0001.
- Draft a short note with the following details:
- Company/donor name;
- Donation amount;
- Name of team or individual receiving the donation;
- Instructions on the division of funds and if necessary a list of team members along with the donation amount that should be attributed to them.
- Forward your matching gift along with your donation to:
RBC Race for the Kids, c/o Casey Harrison

Conditions and criteria for gift matching vary by employer. Some companies offer a payroll deduction plan.

You can download a printable PDF donation form in order to collect offline donations. Please note that while an online donation will be processed immediately and will appear on your fundraising page within minutes of the gift having been made, offline donations may take up to two weeks – from the time that we receive your donations and donation form – to be processed and uploaded to your online fundraising page and for your donors to receive their tax receipt.
It is highly recommended that donations are made online as it gets close to event date for a donation to appear instantly on a participant's fundraising page and for donors to receive a tax receipt automatically.
