Matching Gifts Program

LIMITED-TIME 2:1 MATCH OPEN NOVEMBER 28 – DECEMBER 12, 2022

In support of the Caterpillar Foundation’s 70th Anniversary and Giving Tuesday, the Foundation will provide a limited-time 2:1 match through our Matching Gifts Program for global employee and U.S. retiree gifts made starting November 28 through December 12, 2022 (or once the match total reaches $2M USD). If you are interested, we recommend taking action soon after the opportunity launches the week of November 28 as this 2:1 match is on a first-come first-serve basis and we may reach our cap quickly!
