Matching Gifts

Thank you for considering taking advantage of your employer’s matching gift program so you may be able to double or even triple the amount of your donation to St. Sebastian Parish Foundation. Corporate matching gifts are a great way for you, our St. Sebastian parishioners, alumni, parents, and friends, to maximize personal contributions to us and increase the impact of your gift. Please check with your employer and see if they offer a matching gift program. Many companies have unique guidelines for employees, spouses, retirees and widows/widowers. Most companies have a very simple process where you:

  • Request a Matching Gift Form from your company.
  • Complete and submit the form to St. Sebastian Parish Foundation along with your gift.
  • St. Sebastian will verify the completed form and return it to the company.
  • The company issues a matching gift contribution to St. Sebastian Parish Foundation.
  • Completed forms can be sent with your personal gift to:
    • St. Sebastian Parish Foundation
    • 476 Mull Avenue
    • Akron, Ohio 44320
