Employee-Directed Matching Gifts and United Way
This program is open to full or part-time U.S. employees of Air Products. The Air Products Foundation will make matching contributions to any eligible 501c3 nonprofit organization. The Foundation reserves the right to determine the eligibility of a matching gift as well as the eligibility of a given organization. The Air Products Foundation will match dollar-for-dollar any contribution made by the employee. The maximum amount the Air Products Foundation will donate in any fiscal year for each eligible individual and spouse gift combined is $10,000. The minimum amount is $25.
Eligible individuals may designate their gift to the eligible nonprofit organization and 100% of the matching gift amount will follow that designation. The Matching Gift year is consistent with the Air Products fiscal year which is from October 1 through September 30. Donations made after September 30 will be considered the next year’s gift.
Air Products is a strong supporter of the United Way and celebrates the important work they do in communities in the US and around the world. For the 2018 United Way campaign, the Air Products Foundation will match dollar-for-dollar any contribution made by a current employee or a living retiree up to $50,000. Employees and retirees are encouraged to designate their contributions to nonprofit agencies throughout the United States. The 1:1 match that comes from the Air Products Foundation will follow the designation, with 75% of the matching dollars going to the agency or program of choice and 25% going to the United Way in the home community of the employee or retiree.
