Employer Matching Gifts
Matching gifts are a benefit offered by many companies to encourage philanthropy amongst their employees. This is an incredible way to double the impact of your gift. For most companies, it’s as easy as completing an online or paper form and returning it to MSK. We confirm your gift and send the necessary paperwork directly to your company. If you cannot find specific instructions through MSK’s search tool, contact your company’s Corporate Philanthropy or Human Resources department to initiate the process.
The Matching Gift Process
Step 1: Search Employer
Enter your company name in the search tool below to find out if your employer has a matching gifts program. If your company does not come up, contact your human resource or philanthropy department directly. Your gift may still get matched!
Step 2: Apply for Match
If your company participates, please follow the instructions given or contact your human resources or philanthropy department for the appropriate paperwork.
Step 3: Send Forms
Mail completed forms to MSK’s Matching Gifts department, or submit the necessary information through your company’s online portal (if available).

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center does not accept contributions from tobacco-related companies or other companies or organizations that do not appropriately reflect the nature of the Center’s mission.
To be eligible for a corporate match, original gifts must be donated directly to MSK, Cycle for Survival, Fred’s Team, The Society of Memorial Sloan Kettering, or Kids Walk for Kids, not through a third party website. It is the responsibility of event participants and organizers to make their supporters aware of this policy.
Questions About Matching Gifts
- How long does it take for a matching gift to be processed?
We cannot confirm any matching gift requests with your company until your original gift has been fully processed in our system. This can take several weeks. Once gifts are confirmed, payment times vary from company to company.
- How do I request MSK’s tax ID number (EIN) and/or letter to apply for a matching gift?
MSK's tax ID number (EIN) is 13-1924236. If you need a letter, please contact email@example.com or 800-585-4118 to obtain MSK’s tax ID letter and/or W-9 document. We will respond to you within 48 business hours.
- I’m a Cycle for Survival/Fred’s Team participant. Will my matching gift be added to my fundraising total?
Yes! Matching gifts are automatically added to the same fundraising page that the original donation was made to. Please allow several weeks from submitting your match request for it to appear on your page.
- How can I check the status of my matching gift?
If your company uses an online portal, you can often check the status via your intranet. If that is not an option or for more specific updates please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-585-4118. Be sure to include your company name, original gift amount, and original gift date in any correspondence to help us best assist you.
- Why wasn’t my matching gift approved?
It can take several weeks for matching gifts to be confirmed in our system. If you do not receive immediate confirmation please allow for this grace time.
In rare instances, we may be unable to locate your original gift, and therefore are unable to confirm the match with your company. In other cases, your company’s match policies may prohibit approval of the match. Please contact your Corporate Philanthropy or Human Resources department for detailed guidelines for your company’s matching gifts program.
