“Let Our Efforts Match the Need”
This is our 30th year, and in celebration we are hoping to exceed last year’s donations by 30%. In 2012 we raised $60,335.32 – so for 2013, we have a very ambitious goal of $78,436.00. A great way to increase all contributions is for Recruiters, Walkers, and their Donors to apply for matching gifts from their employers! Check with the Human Resource Department to inquire if they are willing to match their personal gift. Many employers have matched gifts in the past – so it never hurts to ask! Whether you’re given an Application in hard copy or directed to an “online” Application, following is the typical information you will need to enter:
Recipient: Church World Service/CROP (Federal EIN 13-4080201)
Application* and/or Matching Funds should be sent to:
Matching Gifts Program
Church World Service
P.O. Box 968
Elkhart, IN 46515-0968
*Note: Send a copy of your check or your “Online Receipt” with the Application so your gift can be easily verified for your employer.
Please also indicate Hunger Walkathon West (Oak Park, IL) so the matching gift can be credited to our Walk!
Taking this extra small step
could make a huge difference in the lives of many!
