Increase the Impact of Your Gift Today!

Don’t miss the chance to double, triple and sometimes quadruple your gift to Cornerstone Services!

Does your employer match your donations to organizations like ours? Some corporations have even been known to provide a gift for employee volunteer hours and even for retired employees.

Here’s how to find out if you or your spouse’s company participates in a matching gift program:

  1. Ask your human resources department if they participate in a matching gift program. Obtain a matching gift form or find one through your HR online portal and enter Cornerstone Services, Inc.
  2. Fill in the employee section of the form and mail it to Cornerstone Services, Inc., Development Department, 777 Joyce Road, Joliet, IL 60436 or send it via email to the address below.
  3. Cornerstone will complete the form and return it to your employer for processing. Your company will send its matching donation directly to Cornerstone Services. We will notify you when it arrives.

If your employer requires an Employer Identification Number (EIN) (i.e. Federal Tax Identification Number), please use EIN 36-2706578.

For more information about corporate matching gifts, please contact Michelle Allen in the Development Department at 815.741.7609.
