  1. A volunteer match, or a volunteer grant, is when a person volunteers to a non-profit organization and their employer donates a monetary amount to match their efforts. A volunteer match is a great way for a donor to add monetary value to their contribution to help support the kids of St. Jude in finding cures for childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. 

  2. Visit our Volunteer Grants page and use the search function to find the name of your company. If your employer has matched volunteer hours to St. Jude in the past, you’ll find resources specific to the company such as minimum and maximum match amounts, program guidelines and information on getting your donation match to St. Jude.

  3. To make a volunteer match, first go to our Volunteer Grants page and use our search tool to find your employer. If the company is in our database, select it and you will see the specific instructions for that company’s volunteer grants program.

Other ways to give in the workplace

1. Where can I see a list of all companies that match my volunteer hours for St. Jude?

You can use our database to search for any company on our Volunteer Grants page.

2. What happens if a volunteer grant is not approved?

If a company doesn't approve a volunteer matching gift, the company will contact both the employee and the organization with the reason the match was rejected. Most often a volunteer grant is rejected because the volunteer hours or donation amount aren't within the parameters specified by the company.

3. Can I mail a volunteer match form to St. Jude?

Yes, a volunteer match donation form can be mailed to us. Please send your form and include the date and amount of the donation made to St. Jude. The employee should complete the volunteer match form according to the company’s volunteer matching instructions, sign and date.

Matching donations forms should be mailed to:

If the company's volunteer match through their matching gift program has an online matching process, the donor will be responsible for completing the matching process via the company’s database.

Volunteer grant guidelines are established by each company. Deadlines for submitting a volunteer match vary from 30 days from the volunteer date to more than one year from the volunteer date. To find out the deadlines associated with your employer’s volunteer grants program, search for your company on our Volunteer Grants page.

5. What should I do if I can't find my employer in the volunteer match search?

If you can't find your employer in the list, there is a good chance it is not in the database. To help encourage your employer to match volunteer hours to St. Jude, submit your request to your HR department.
