Matching Gift

Did you make a monetary donation to a nonprofit organization, K-12 public or private school, or college/university this calendar year?

After making a monetary donation to an eligible Matching Gift organization, you may submit for a match from the State Farm Companies Foundation. The deadline to submit a match request for monetary donations is March 31 of the year after the donation was made. For example, if you make a charitable donation to a nonprofit organization from January 1 to December 31 of the current year, you will have until March 31 of the following year to submit your Matching Gift application.

Submit your application and monitor its status at the Matching Gift site.

State Farm Companies Foundation will match the eligible tax-deductible portion of a contribution to qualified charitable organizations and U.S. colleges and universities.
