Workplace Matching Gift Programs

Companies of all sizes and in all  business and service categories have Gift Matching programs which provide matching dollars for employee contributions to organizations such as ours. Businesses often encourage their employees to contribute to the community through a matching fund program or a workplace giving campaign. If you or someone in your family works for a company that has a matching program, you can benefit by doubling your endowment fund contribution dollars. Your company’s Human Resources Department or Community Relations Department should be able to provide  you with the required form to mail to us.


You can help us cut some or all of the expenses of arranging one of our cultural events. Sokol Greater Cleveland and the Czech Cultural Center are committed to the exchange of knowledge and ideas  necessary for citizens to better understand not just their own their societies and cultures, but to appreciate the importance and contributions of cultures outside their own borders. By underwriting the cost of  promoting the cultural, academic and societal exchange between the Czech and Slovak Republics, you can help us cherish our heritage and keep alive the cultural history and traditions of the Czechlands and its people.
