Match Your Gift

Help us raise $200,000 this year without giving another cent!

As you know, your membership support is the largest single source of revenue for WBEZ. But did you know that with just a little extra paperwork, you could help us raise an extra $200,000 in funds?

Many employers will double—or even triple—your gift to WBEZ. Ask your human resources department for details or use MatchFinderOnline to check for your employer’s policies and forms.
Why is matching important?

  • A match buys two or three times as much news, information and culture as an unmatched gift
  • Matching helps make fundraising more efficient
  • A match is like adding one or two extra listeners to our membership, and more listener support ensures WBEZ is an independent and reliable voice
