Hello community,

Most of us have spent the last few days trying to find the best deals to maximize our money, and many of us are planning to donate monies to charities this season. Why not combine the two?

In the quick summary, I've listed several organizations that are currently offering to match donations. I'm hoping that the FW community will join in and add other matching programs.

If you post a matching program, please include the organization name, campaign name & recipient, minimum donation amount, link, expiration date, and any special instructions. Also, please update the quick summary with your information, under the appropriate category.

I know that there are a lot of generous people on FW, so I hope that this information proves useful. Also, check with your employer, as many offer their own matching programs. Be sure to keep your donation receipts for tax filing. Happy holidays.

Thanks for the update. I definitely need F.A. to help me with my household grocery shopping.

I found a few that I'll be adding shortly, and I'm still looking for other reputable matching programs to add to the list (and I slipped in a few $1 donations for completing various tasks).

Well this is very nice idea, I agree with you whatever you said.

For anyone interested in updates, I just added Groupon Grassroots under CHILDREN and added Environmental Workgroup under ENVIRONMENT earlier today.

I had added this thread earlier for Sandy / Hhonors - http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/hot-deals/1231255/
