Corporate Matching Gifts

Ask your employer about corporate matching gifts to charitable organizations. It’s an easy way to double or even triple the impact of your personal contribution.

  • Consult your human resources department to find out whether your company has a matching gift program.
  • If it does, your employer can provide you with a form to fill out and send to us with your donation. Some companies have on-line options as well.
  • We will verify your gift and return the form to your company, which will then issue a matching gift contribution directly to First Nations Development Institute.

Planned Giving

Planned giving includes donation options such as IRA Charitable Rollovers, Charitable Gift Annuities, and Charitable Bequests. With gift planning, you can provide long-lasting support for our organization while enjoying financial benefits for yourself. Learn more here.
