Automate your matching gift fundraising with 360MatchPro, the industry-leading solution by Double the Donation.
One of the best—and easiest—ways to hit your fundraising goal is to leverage matching gifts to potentially double (or triple!) your donations by tapping into existing donor networks.
Unfortunately, there's a massive untapped potential of $4-7 billion in unclaimed matching gift revenue each year—highlighting the gap that still exists between nonprofits and corporate giving programs.
But here's the good news: Givebutter and Double the Donation offer a seamless integration that allows nonprofits to embed matching gift search functionality right into their donation forms with ease. This means no more missed opportunities for unclaimed matching gifts, maximizing your fundraising efforts, and unlocking additional revenue streams.
What is Double the Donation?
Double the Donation is a platform that uses your existing donor base to find corporate sponsors. These corporate sponsors, in turn, can be sent automated marketing materials requesting matching gifts.
How does Double the Donation work?
360MatchPro syncs seamlessly with Givebutter's fundraising software to help you find corporate sponsors and ultimately hit your campaign goal.
Here’s how the 360MatchPro plugin works:
- 👏 Donation: An individual donates to your good cause through your Givebutter donation form, fundraising page, event, or donate button embedded on your website.
- 💬 Company search: 360MatchPro searches through their matching gift database, trying to find a corporation that offers a matching gift program that’s connected to the individual who just made the contribution.
- ✅ Confirmation: 360MatchPro confirms that a corporation offers a matching gift program.
- 📩 Automated message: 360MatchPro drafts an automated matching gift request message to send to the corporate sponsor. Donors will also receive a follow-up email with everything they need to finalize and submit their matching gift request.
The 360MatchPro platform provides nonprofits with tools to identify match-eligible donors, guide donors through the submission process to drive matches to completion, and gain actionable insights.
