Can I Match My Gift Through My Employer?Click to Open
Yes, with the gift receipt from your CIEE donation, please check with your company’s HR department for the proper matching gift forms to double or triple the impact of your gift. Once all the paperwork is submitted with your company, CIEE will verify the donation and your company will send the match. You will be recognized for the match at the level of the combined gifts, i.e. if you make a $500 gift and your company sends in a matching $500 you will be recognized at the $1,000 level. If you’re unsure if your company matches charitable contributions, check with your HR department.
Why Isn’t CIEE Rated By Charity Navigator?Click to Open
CIEE is not rated by Charity Navigator because the company does not rely on support from contributors and foundations to operate. This is good news, as CIEE’s balanced budget means all charitable support is directed toward access for students who would not otherwise have the chance to study abroad. You may use Charity Navigator’s article on evaluating unrated charities to evaluate CIEE’s financial health and transparency and view CIEE’s 990 on Charity Navigator. CIEE is committed to transparency, financial health and seeking charitable donations to increase access to CIEE programs for all students.
