The Matching Grants Program through Medtronic was introduced on September 10, 2013. The program was designed to make charitable giving easy, convenient and meaningful for you, the employee or retiree. This philanthropic program matches dollar for dollar employee charitable donations, with the intent to mutually double the impact people make in the communities where they live and work.
This past year, Medtronic philanthropy would match $50,000, dollar for dollar, of your donations. For 2014 they have agreed to increase the match to $100,000 allowing you to make an even greater impact in your local community.
To make the most of this gifting program and to benefit you and your future gifting there are potential tax efficient ways to transfer your Medtronic stock. One way is to transfer appreciated stock to a Donor Advised Fund (DAF).
