Matching Gifts

You can double or even triple your donation to MIFA if your company has a matching gift program. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift. 

To find out whether your company will match gifts to MIFA, contact your human resources office. 

Your personal gift and matched contribution will go a long way in helping MIFA serve thousands of seniors and families in crisis. If you have questions about matching gifts please contact Dorothy McClure at (901) 529-4523 or dmcclure@mifa.org.

Monthly Giving

She will be glad to answer your questions and work with your financial advisors to provide you with tailored advice to meet your goals.
