* Company Matching Program (applicable to some US companies)

You can refer to a topic at the discussion board on this donation option.

大部分美国公司都有Matching Gift Program for慈善捐款,通常是1:1或更多。也就是说,你捐100,公司也捐100。

请各位在捐款中国红十字会之前跟公司人事部联系,看接受捐款部门是否符合本公司的要求。如果中国的机构不合要求,可以等美国红十字会开始这项募捐,美国红十字会肯定符合要求。

Currently, 6 known companies are willing to match your donation to SVTN : Google, Yahoo, Spansion, Qualcomm, eBay, HP.

It is required to add Silicon Valley Tsinghua Network into your company’s database for matching purpose. The process to add SVTN into your company’s database might take 2 day to 2 months. But you could make your donation today and send the matching request to your company HR department.

Also, please remember, company matching program do not send check for individual donation. They will collect all employee donations in certain period. Then, the company will send us a check. Typically, they send one check per quarter. We will send our company matching money to China Red Cross.
