Corporate Matching Gifts

A message from Mr. Randy Pond

Randy Pond, Cisco EVP, and Board Chair

A Message from Randy Pond:

As an ING Trustee, and Chair of the Board of Directors, I’m continually on the lookout for ways to maximize the impact of the organization.  ING relies heavily on funding from donors like you and me.  In my executive role at Cisco, I’m in a position to oversee our philanthropic programs, and am pleased to share that ING is an approved 501c3; meaning it is eligible for the Cisco matching gift program.

If you are planning to provide a gift to ING, and you work for an organization that offers a matching gift program, please maximize your impact by following through to get your gift matched by your employer.


Many companies have employee matching gift programs, which match employee contributions to eligible nonprofits (such as ING) dollar-for-dollar.

ING is registered with Cisco, Google, Microsoft, Oracle, and Yahoo! Employee Matching Gift Programs. If you work for another company that may have an employee matching gift program, please contact your HR department to see if ING is already registered. If not, please contact us and we’ll work with you to make it happen. Contact ING’s Accounting Manager Paky ElHossamy at [email protected] for more information.

ING is a 501(c)3 nonprofit educational organizon that serves the general public. We meet almost all companies’ matching gift eligibility requirements. ING is also an accredited charity of the Better Business Bureau. Please use this form to contact us with any questions.
