7. Employer Match
Matching gifts are grants an employer makes to match its employees’ charitable contributions, often dollar-for-dollar. Most large corporations and many smaller businesses have matching gift programs. GEC is a registered 501(c)3 organization, so your donation is eligible for most matching programs. To make a matching contribution, contact your Human Resources department or visit your company’s employee resources web page to find out if a matching gift program is available to you.
- GEC is working to open the first National Training Center for Emergency Care Practitioners – non-physician clinicians – in Uganda.
- At the same time, GEC is working to establish the first, functioning, emergency medicine residency program in Uganda to train emergency care specialists to grow the emergency medicine discipline nationwide.
- These two projects in combination with one another will provide Uganda with the cornerstone for building an equitable, emergency care system to serve all Ugandans.
- Donations from you support various programs and activities, including paying education, programmatic, and research staff; the acquisition of needed supplies and local salaries at the Emergency Departments at Nyakibale Hospital and Masaka Hospital; the development of our curriculum; the ongoing training of the Emergency Care Practitioners; data collection and publication; and work toward the expansion of this program to other sites, and eventually, nationwide.
