A gift to San Francisco Zen Center could be doubled, tripled, and even quadrupled; many businesses sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. To find out if a company has a matching gift policy, donors can consult with their employer’s Human Resources and ask whether the company matches employee donations to San Francisco Zen Center’s charitable organization, The Zen Foundation (EIN 26-1333960).
Gifts of goods or services from individuals or small businesses are gratefully received.
