Dollars for DoersA type of workplace giving program where an employer makes a donation to a charity based on the volunteer support provided to that charity by one or more of its employees. Dollars for Doers is a spin on the traditional Matching Gifts program. They have been popular for many years.

The guidelines for these programs can vary widely. Some companies require teams of volunteers to participate, while others encourage individual volunteering. It used to be common place for charities to verify the activity before the match would be funded, but this audit step has fallen into disfavor as companies seek to increase participation and reduce administrative burdens on all parties involved.
