Employee Gift Match

The Armstrong World Industries Foundation offers a charitable gift matching program for employees who make monetary gifts to non-profit organizations or volunteer their time for causes they care about.  The program is called Employee Choice.  In total, each employee has up to $1,000 in total he/she may request for matching contributions to non-profit organizations.  For a financial contribution, the minimum gift is $50 and the maximum gift is $500 per employee per calendar year. Employees may give to multiple organizations.  For volunteering, the foundation will grant $500 when an employee volunteers a minimum of 36 hours in the current calendar year. The maximum amount for each employee is $500 per calendar year.   

Please note the foundation budgets a set dollar amount for the Employee Choice Gift Matching Program. Once the dollars have been exhausted for the calendar year, no further requests will be paid for that calendar year. The program may be changed, suspended, or terminated at any time without notice and administration, interpretations, and applications of the provisions of the program shall be final.

To participate, you as an employee must follow the process outlined below to create a form that must be printed and mailed, or saved electronically and emailed, along with your donation, to your charitable organization of choice.
