Matching Gifts

WBEZ membership support is the largest single source of revenue for Chicago Public Media. But did you know that with just a little extra effort, you could help us raise an extra $250,000?

Many employers will double—or even triple—your donation. 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 would
  • matching helps make fundraising more efficient
  • a match is like adding one or two extra listeners to our membership, and more listener support ensures Chicago Public Media is an independent and reliable voice
