Matching Gifts Policy
The purpose of this policy is to outline the procedure for Blue Sky Therapy Services Employees to use the Matching Gifts Program. This program allows all regular employees to have their personal charitable contributions matched by the company.
Blue Sky Therapy Services supports our employees' charitable efforts through our Matching Gifts program. Open to all regular staff, personal donations to registered charities can be matched by the company dollar from $25 to a maximum of $1000 per calendar year.
RECOGNIZED CHARITIES & COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS
Through this policy and our programs we support organizations that are registered as a charity or not-for-profit or tax exempt organizations and that are consistent with our values.
GUIDELINES FOR MATCHING
To apply for your personal charitable donations to be matched by the business, employees must mail, fax, or email a receipt of their donation (or volunteer hours) to the main office. If the charitable organization you are giving to has a company matching option built in, that organization may send directly receipt of donation and request for match to firstname.lastname@example.org.
DOLLARS FOR DOERS
We recognize that many employees regularly volunteer their time to charitable organizations and we believe these efforts should be rewarded. Through our Dollars for Doers program, your volunteer efforts can translate into dollars and go towards your $1000 annual matching limit.
Here's how it works:
IF YOU ONLY WANT TO VOLUNTEER: If you volunteer 40 hours during a calendar year for one charity, you can apply for a total grant of $1000 to that charity. It does not have to be all one charity; if you volunteer 20 hours at one charity and 20 hours at another charity during the calendar year, you are able to apply for a $500 grant to each charity. A record of your volunteer hours (with a signature from a representative of the charity on the record) must be submitted to the main office to apply for the grant.
IF YOU WANT TO VOLUNTEER AND GIVE A DONATION: You are able to use both benefits if you choose; for example, you could volunteer 20 hours for a charitable organization and get the $500 grant, as well as contribute an additional $5spectrum 00 in donations matched by the company.
IF YOU CHOOSE TO ONLY GIVE DONATIONS: If you are not volunteering at a charitable organization or choose to donate money in lieu of time, you will be able to request gift matching up to $1000 per calendar year.
The company does not support employee efforts for organizations that discriminate; organizations, private foundations, or programs that fund terrorist groups or activities; political causes, candidates, organizations or campaigns; or religious organizations for denominational or religious purposes. The company reserves the right also to withhold support for other charities or for particular campaigns that it deems violates the spirit of any of the above exclusions. If you have a questions as to whether or not your donations will be eligible to be matched, please contact the main office.
This policy applies to all Blue Sky Therapy Services offices and regular employees and will be reviewed and revised as necessary.
