Employee Matching

Learn more about how your company can match your donation. 

Have you considered that your company might match your donation and multiply your contribution For The Kids? Every company has its own guidelines for matching.

 To find out if your company has a matching program, visit https://www.matchinggifts.com/uff.

If your company matches contributions to Shands Teaching Hospital and Clinics, Inc. locally (preferred) OR Children’s Miracle Network nationally, here are two ways to match your contribution:

  1. If your company uses an online platform for gift matching, submit an online gift matching verification form through your company’s portal and use the information listed below as the destination for your contribution. To be appropriately matched in the most efficient manner, we encourage matching through our preferred donation location listed below. Shands Teaching Hospital and Clinics, Inc. is our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital and it is easiest to complete your employee match through this local option.

  2. Obtain a matching gift verification form from your Human Resources Department. Complete the form and list our organization name below. If you directed your donation to Children’s Miracle Network, please email dmfsu.financedirector@gmail.com with a copy of the matching gift verification form.
