Matching Gifts

To encourage and support the generosity and community involvement of employees and retirees, Duke Energy offers The Duke Energy Foundation Matching Gift Program which provides matching funds to the charitable organizations employees and retirees personally support. To maximize the impact, Duke Energy matches, dollar for dollar, donations made by eligible participants to educational institutions and .50 for dollar for donations made to all other charitable organizations, up to $5,000 per donor per calendar year. The Duke Energy Foundation reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to refuse payment of a matching gift to any nonprofit organization, if the Foundation believes or determines that such organizationís actions or values are not aligned with The Duke Energy Foundation philanthropic goals. The Duke Energy Foundation reserves the right to further restrict gifts based on the availability of funds.
