Employer Matching

Increase the impact of your gift to KEXP with an employer match! As a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and an affiliate of the University of Washington, KEXP is eligible for most Employer Matching Gift programs.

How can I find out if my employer matches gifts?

Please contact your Human Resources department to learn if your employer can match contributions. Each company does matching a little differently and they should be able to share information about the policies and process specific to your employer.

My employer does match gifts! How can I enroll?

You can request an employer match for your charitable gift through THREE easy steps:

1) Contact your HR department to determine instructions for submitting a matching gift. You can also learn more about your employer's policies here .

2) Determine the amount that you are eligible to have matched, which is the amount you have paid to date minus the fair market value of thank you gifts received this year.

3) Designate your matched funds to KEXP (or Friends of KEXP). We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and our non-profit registration number, or EIN, is: 91-2061474.

Your employer may also ask for additional information about KEXP:

Legal Name: Friends of KEXP (but KEXP works too)
Address: 472 1st Ave N, Seattle WA 98109
Tax ID number or EIN: 91-2061474

Please note that employers can only match the amount you have paid to-date, as opposed to the total amount you are donating over time. If you made a one-time gift, great! You can submit for a match for the full amount.

If you are a monthly donor, your gift can be matched in one of two ways:

1) Submit a matching gift form for each month's installment 

– OR –

2) Submit a matching gift form when your installments have completed, or once a fiscal year if you are an Amplifier Club donor.
