Giving Tuesday 2:1 Match – Now Closed

OVERVIEW

In support of Giving Tuesday, the Caterpillar Foundation provided a limited-time 2:1 match through our Matching Gifts Program for global employee and U.S. retiree gifts made starting November 15 through November 30, 2021. Thanks to the incredible outpouring of support from employees and retirees, we reached the $1.5 million match cap. The 2:1 Giving Tuesday match program is now closed to new submissions. Charities now have until December 15, 2021 at 11:59pm CST to confirm match requests that were previously submitted during this timeframe.

But there is good news! We still offer a 1:1 match through our standard year-round matching program (click here for more information).
