Did you know many companies offer a matching gift program to encourage philanthropy among their employees? Gifts from employees’ spouses and retirees may also qualify for a match.
Matching gifts provide you with an easy way to potentially double, if not triple, your original donation! Many companies supplement their employees’ contributions to non-profits like ours (specifications of the match vary based upon each company). In fact, your company, a spouse’ s company, the company whose board you serve or even a company that you retired from may match your gift. Some may offer grants for your time that you volunteer with us as well.
If you are not sure if you qualify for a matching gift, please use the company search below. The tool will provide you with information regarding minimum and maximum match, as well as steps on how to get started.

Treu Office Supply & Furniture (110 Lake St, Elmira) offers a way to help local neighbors-in-need. Treu’s has established a cartridge recycling project.
Empty cartridges from both home and office printers can be dropped off at Treu’s. The cartridges are picked up by a recycler and refilled for resale. The recycler pays a small fee for each cartridge and Treu’s donates these funds (plus a matching amount they contribute!) to the Elmira Community Kitchen. Empty cartridges help fill plates at the Elmira Community Kitchen!
