Matching Gift Program

Kinzler Corporation's Matching Gift Program encourages employee-owners to become personally involved in the well-being of the communities in which they live and work by contributing to qualifying charitable organizations of their choice.

The program advances substantial community investments through a collaboration among employees and the company with dollar-for-dollar cash matches to qualified organizations.

Who is eligible to participate?

  • All regular full-time employees of Kinzler Corporation (Kinzler Construction Services, Kinzler Materials and WD Door.)

Which organizations qualify to receive matching funds?

  • Most non-profit charitable organizations that are recognized by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service both as tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and as public charities.
  • U.S. local and state government owned and operated entities such as public schools, publicly owned and operated museums, public libraries and zoos.
  • Accredited educational institutions that are exempt from federal taxes under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

What are the Company’s matching rates and donation qualifications?

  • Employee gifts are matched $1 for $1 to an annual maximum match of $1,000. Note: If an individual’s gift(s) exceeds the annual maximum match amount, gifts will be matched up to the annual maximum match amount in date-of-gift order in the calendar quarter in which the match is paid.
  • Each gift made must be made with personal funds in the form of cash, personal check from the eligible donor’s personal or joint account or credit card.
  • Donor must demonstrate active personal involvement in the organization receiving the gift (volunteering, serving on the board, etc.)

Are there any contributions that are ineligible for matching?

We do not match any gifts:

  • That result in a personal benefit or privilege to the donor, the donor’s family or anyone designated by the donor, such as admission tickets, entry fees, subscriptions and membership fees.
  • To organizations that do not comply with USA Patriot Act.
  • To churches, mosques, synagogues or other faith-based houses of worship except accredited educational institutions meeting the criteria described above.
  • To organizations having a sectarian religious cause as their primary purpose or that do not serve the community at large.
  • To private or family foundations, personal trusts or political or fraternal organizations.
  • To donor advised funds unless solely funded by the eligible employee, retiree or board member. Matching funds may not be used for administrative, management or other fund related fees and expenses.
  • To athletic organizations such as funds, foundations, scholarships or booster clubs.
  • Deferred gifts, such as charitable remainder trusts or annuity trusts or gifts of real estate, personal property, or in-kind contributions.
  • Made from business accounts, a spouse’s or domestic partner’s individual account, or a separate foundation.

Are there additional limitations on matching?
Our program is subject to these additional restrictions:

  • Future pledges are not matched through the program. Payment of pledge must meet our program criteria. If an organization’s program changes and is no longer eligible under the Matching Gift Program criteria, payment will not be made.
  • Donations must be individual contributions provided by one participant and not a collection of pooled donations from other parties. Multiple gifts submitted on one application are not eligible for matching.
  • A single contribution will only be matched by Kinzler Corporation once. A Kinzler employee and their Kinzler employee spouse or domestic partner cannot request two matching gifts for the same donation.
  • We do not provide funding to any organization that discriminates based on color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, gender identity or expression, genetic information or any other legally protected status.
  • Intermediary organizations, including donor advised funds, and the ultimate recipient of such funds’ matching gift donation, are treated as separate organizations. As such, both the intermediary organization, and the ultimate beneficiary of such fund’s charitable distribution, must meet the eligibility requirements outlined above.

Is there an employee deadline for matching gifts?

Confirmation for gifts made in the calendar year (January 1 through December 31) must be received by Kinzler Corporation from the eligible organization by January 31 of the following year to qualify for a match.

It is the donor’s responsibility to review the guidelines prior to applying for a grant. These guidelines are subject to change at any time without prior notification. Kinzler Corporation reserves the right to decline requests to organizations that might represent a conflict of interest with Kinzler’s core values, business interests or its reputation or relationship with others.

Kinzler Corporation reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to discontinue funding and to demand the return of all or any portion of the matching gift grant amount and any income earned thereon if you provide us with any false or misleading information or make any misrepresentations in connection with a request for a matching gift.
