Ways to Give to KEXP: Employer Matching

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

How can I find out if my employer matches gifts?
The University of Washington provides a a useful search engine for determining if your employer has a matching gift program. Type in the name of your company and you’ll be directed to pages supplying the policies and forms specific to your employer.

My employer does match gifts! How can I enroll?
As a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, KEXP is eligible for many employers’ corporate matching gifts programs as Friends of KEXP or through the University of Washington as part of an educational institution. Contact your human resources department for information on how to submit for your match.

Your employer may also ask you for some 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: 91-206-1474

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.
Additionally, employers will match only the portion of your gift for which you may receive a tax benefit. In other words, they will match the total amount of your donation, minus the 'fair-market value' of any thank-you gifts you received.

Fair-Market Value of Various KEXP Gifts:
CD $15
KEXP T-shirt $15
KEXP Belt Buckle $15
KEXP Messenger Bag $22
