Charity Match Program
AWS and SMI recognize the important role that charitable, nonprofit organizations play in the communities where we live and work. We’re launching a charitable match program to support the work of these organizations and to encourage and support employee giving. The program provides a dollar-for-dollar match of employee contributions from a minimum of $25 to a maximum of $250 per employee per fiscal year – doubling the impact of our employee’s community contributions.
How it works:
- Make your donation (be sure to keep your receipt!)
- Submit the request form for a company match (have your receipt handy!)
- Upon approval, a check for the match amount will be sent directly to the qualifying organization. You'll receive notice either way!
- Each match request must be for a minimum of $25, with a maximum of $250 per employee per fiscal year (Feb-Jan)
- Employees may submit multiple requests (not to exceed $250 total per employee), but must submit a request for each organization and contribution.
- Employees must be employed full-time both at the time the contribution is made and matched.
- Charitable nonprofit organizations involved in education, social services, or environmental health and safety activities.
- Organizations located in the areas we serve.
- Organizations that are recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization whose purpose is charitable or educational.
- Politically affiliated organizations are not eligible.
- Organizations that discriminate based on race, gender, ethnicity, or creed are not eligible.
- Organizations that are identified more with specific groups of people rather than the general public, such as veterans’ groups, fraternal orders, labor organizations, and entertainment organizations are not eligible.
- Contributions that are merely pledged and not yet paid with the employee’s personal funds.
- Contributions that provide the employee any direct benefits or privileges, such as membership dues, tickets to events, raffle tickets, subscription fees, etc.
- Contributions that discharge a legal obligation of the employee or any other person.
- Contributions to an organization or educational institution to support a specific individual.
- In-kind contributions, such as personal or real property, or the value of personal expertise/volunteer work.
- Contributions made jointly by several individuals.
