Matching Gifts

The following companies offer gift matching programs to employees. KQED is grateful to these businesses in Northern California and beyond and to their employees who choose to support KQED in this way.

My employer participates in a matching-gift program, but requires verification of my contribution. Where can I get the forms and where do I send them?
The human resources department at your company should have matching gift forms. Completed forms should be sent to KQED Matching Gifts, 2601 Mariposa Street, San Francisco, CA 94110. Many companies also give the option to have your gift matched through online gift verification process.

Companies will match only the amount paid to KQED, therefore, if you paid your pledge by installments, KQED cannot verify your matching gift request until the pledge has been paid in full. Sustaining members should submit one request annually after they have made their final payment in the current calendar year. Further, companies will also only match the tax deductible amount of your contribution. KQED will verify the tax deductible portion of your contribution. If you have any questions, please email

If you have other questions about KQED’s Matching Gift program, please contact KQED Member Services, Monday through Friday, from 9am to 445pm at (415) 553-2150 or

Please use the following address if you prefer to mail matching gift forms: Matching Gifts, KQED Membership Department, 2601 Mariposa Street, San Francisco, CA 94110.
