Matching Gifts

Many employers offer to match the contributions that their employees make to charitable organizations. This could mean your gift to MassEquality will go twice as far towards ensuring LGBTQ equality! Follow the steps below.
  1. Contact your employer’s Human Resources department to learn about their eligibility requirements and to obtain a Matching Gift form. Many companies will match the gifts of retirees, spouses, surviving spouses, etc. as well as gifts made by employees. 
  2. Fill out the Employee portion of the Matching Gift form, and mail it to MassEquality, 128A Tremont Street, Suite 4R, Boston, MA 02108, or scan and email it to info@massequality.org  with the Subject line "Matching Gift Form".

Corporate Sponsorship Program

Our corporate sponsors play a pivotal role in ensuring that we can continue fighting for the rights of LGBTQ people throughout Massachusetts. There are five levels of corporate sponsorship: Change Maker, Coalition Builder, Diversity Leader, Justice Advocate, and Equality Champion. Both for-profit businesses and non-profit organizations can participate in the program. Corporate sponsors receive recognition on our website, in our e-newsletters, and more.

Stock/Securities Giving

With a gift of stock, you can support MassEquality’s work and secure tax benefits for yourself at the same time.

Tribute Gift

A Tribute Gift is a wonderful way to mark a special occasion such as a wedding or birthday, or honor a friend, mentor, colleague, family member or other special person or couple while also supporting our work on behalf of the LGBTQ community. Email us with details about the occasion and person(s) being honored, and we will send your designated recipient a letter informing them of your generous gift.
