Many corporations in the Bay Area have employees who live in Hillsborough. Please consider matching donations when your employees donate to HSF! HSF can help you with your matching gift program, and the procedures for processing a match.

Check to see if your company has a matching gift program.

These are the steps your employee(s) will take to receive a matching gift:

  1. Your employee makes a donation (i.e., payment) to HSF.
  2. Your employee contacts your Human Resources Department to obtain and complete their Matching Gifts form.
  3. Either the Human Resources Department or the employee must do one of the following (companies do this differently):
    • email the completed form to the HSF Executive Director
    • mail a completed form to the HSF office
    • bring the completed form to the HSF office
  4. HSF completes the form (confirming the family has actually made a donation), and returns the form to the company.

Companies will be acknowledged in HSF's Annual Report; employees will be acknowledged in the Annual Report. for the total amount received on their behalf (however, their tax receipts are based on their actual personal donations).

Contact the HSF office for assistance:
