Lilly offers one of the most robust benefits packages of any employer.  Many times busy Lilly employees are not fully aware of or do not take full advantage of all the benefits that are offered them.  One such benefit is the Matching Gifts Program.As the end of the year approaches you may be thinking about your charitable donations for the 2013 tax year.  Did you know that you can help your chosen eligible non-profit organizations twice as much through the Eli Lilly and Company Foundation Matching Gifts Program?

Matching gifts are a great way for Lilly employees and retirees to maximize personal contributions to the charities of their choice and increase the impact of their gift.  The program will match employee and retiree gifts to qualified organizations.  There is a $25 minimum contribution for each match and a $30,000 total contribution limit per year for employees and a $2,500 limit per year for retirees.

You may request matching gifts online at www.easymatch.com/lillymg.  After receiving the match request, Lilly will contact the organization to verify receipt of the gift.  Lilly then issues a matching gift contribution to the organization.

If you’re not already doing it, take a few extra minutes to complete the request form and double your donation!
