Leadership Giving

Matching Gifts

Workplace Campaigns

Many companies have workplace campaigns each year allowing and encouraging you to donate to a nonprofit of your choice through regular payroll deductions. The United Way may have a campaign at your company that will allow you to designate JVC Northwest as the recipient of your gift. Simply write in Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest along with our address, P.O. Box 22125, Portland, OR 97269.

Corporate Matching Gifts

Your company may also provide corporate matching gifts, which double the impact of your gift to JVC Northwest. Some companies also make contributions based on volunteer hours you provide for JVC Northwest. If you’re unsure of your company’s policy, please ask if this is an option for you. You may need to send a form to us with your donation that we will complete and return to your employer.

Please mail your donation and Matching Gift Form to:
