Double your impact. See if your employer matches charitable contributions. Some will even triple your gift(at no cost to you). Many employers in the North Texas area offer a matching charitable gift program and will match, usually at 100%, their employees’ donations to non-profit organizations. As a 501(c)(3) Human Services educational organization, our organization is eligible to benefit from such programs.

To see if your company offers a matching gift program, you can ask your benefits or Human Resources (HR) department or it might be on your company’s employee portal. We are already registered with Benevity, Network for Good, YourCause, and American Online Giving Foundation. Please let us know if there is another one your company is using.

Our organization’s full name is One Dharma Awakening Heart Dallas Meditation Center (EIN: 46-3512018) and is classified as a 501(c)(3) Human Services (P99) organization.
