Image: 

Thank you for all you do to give and volunteer to causes that matter to you and to build stronger communities. As a reminder, January 31, 2023 (Midnight EST), is the deadline for requesting a match for your 2022 donations and volunteer hours.  The website for registering gifts and volunteer hours is http://getinvolved.ti.com.  It only takes a couple of minutes to request a match, once you log in:

 

Matching gifts, volunteer matching, and guidelines/FAQ can be accessed on the homepage

Easily “create new” requests for organizations to which you donated in the past 

Access your historical giving by clicking on “matching gifts” or “volunteer giving” at the top of the page (or by clicking on the “matching” tab after December 16th).

See the status of your nominations and amount matched to date

 

The limit for matching gifts is $30,000 per year with a minimum of $25 per gift.  Your favorite 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt organizations, as well as schools, colleges and universities, are eligible for a match with exceptions noted below.  The minimum number of hours for volunteer matching grants is 10 hours with one organization, and the maximum annual volunteer matching grant is 80 hours/$1,000.  

 

Certain charitable organizations are ineligible for a match and include churches/houses of worship, private foundations, lobbying and social organizations.  You can find a complete list of ineligible organizations on the http://getinvolved.ti.comwebsite.    

Donations made to United Way/partner agencies are not matched automatically.  You must register these gifts on the matching gifts website like all other donations.  The Giving and Volunteer team will be sending a reminder with instructions in early January.

If you make recurring donations (i.e., United Way, KERA, St. Jude Children’s Hospital), you can combine gift amounts and submit one match request at year end.  Please total amounts given throughout the year to an organization and use the last gift date when submitting the request. 

Donations made through a donor advised fund or a fundraising platform (i.e. Facebook, GoFundMe, PayPal, etc.) should be submitted for the recipient charitable organization (if eligible). 

 

If you have questions or problems accessing the site, please contact the Support Desk at 855-493-9862. It is open Monday - Friday from 8 am to 8 pm CST to answer any questions. Again, thank you for giving and volunteering to build stronger communities.
