Corporate Matching Gifts

Many corporations express their support of charitable organizations and encourage their employees to make philanthropic donations to institutions of their choice.  The employer then matches the original donation.  If your employer does offer a matching gift program please request the appropriate form from your employer and include it with your donation.  The Museum of Russian Art will provide the appropriate information to complete the process.
