Make an Employee Matching Gift

Keep doubling your gift! Many organizations, including Nike and Intel, match donations made by their employees.

Ask your human resources department or benefits office for a matching gift form.

All memorial and honor gifts will be acknowledged through a personal note sent by the Alliance Française de Portland to the honored person(s) or their family and, if appropriate, with a plaque.
