Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin More people are donating to charity via new workplace online giving platforms than ever, and they’re donating more than ever. It seems they’ve been spurred on in part by the issues of 2020—the Covid-19 pandemic and racial justice—and in part by the lure of company matching gifts. Toyota, Nordstrom and Comcast all launched new online charitable gift matching programs this year. Yet millions of Americans are missing out on the chance to grab an employer charitable match.
