Online Matching Gifts Process
If a company has an online matching gift process, the donor must complete the matching gift process through the company’s database. It is very important that the donor designate “Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure® as the recipient of the matching gift (with the recipient address of 205 N. Michigan Avenue, Suite 2630, Chicago, IL 60601), not “Susan G. Komen for the Cure®” generally or any Susan G. Komen event or affiliate other than the 3-Day for the Cure event. If the gift is not designated to the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure with the address listed above, the 3-Day may not receive the funds and the participant will not be credited with the matching gift.

If Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure is not listed as a recipient in your employer’s matching gift database, then you will need to “nominate” the 3-Day for the Cure as a matching gift recipient. Please use the following information when nominating the 3-Day:

Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure
205 N. Michigan Avenue, Suite 2630
Chicago, IL  60601
Tax ID # 75-1835298
Org website: The3Day.org

Important note for donors processing matching gift forms online: If the matching company has an online matching gifts process, the donor must note the name of the participant he or she is supporting and the location of that participant's event on the form (e.g., Jane Doe, 2011 Boston 3-Day for the Cure). There is typically a line titled “gift designation,” “purpose section” or “notes” on the online matching gift form where this information may be provided. Providing this information is required for the appropriate participant to receive credit for the matching gift.

Paper Matching Gifts Process
Once the donor has obtained a matching gift form from their employer or matching gift program coordinator (If your company matches, you may be able to access the forms directly through the search function on the Matching Gifts page), the donor must complete the employee/donor section. It is very important that the donor designate “Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure” as the recipient of the matching gift, not “Susan G. Komen for the Cure” generally or any Susan G. Komen event or affiliate other than the 3-Day for the Cure event. The address listed for the 3-Day should be: 205 N. Michigan Avenue, Suite 2630, Chicago, IL 60601. Once the donor has completed his/her section of the matching gift form, he/she should write the participant’s name, ID number and event city in the upper right hand corner of the form, make a copy of the form for his/her personal records and mail the form along with a copy of their donation receipt to the following address:

Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure
205 N. Michigan Avenue, suite 2630
Chicago, IL  60601

Processing Time for All Matching Gifts
It can take 5-6 weeks for the 3-Day to process a matching gift request. Once the matching gift request has been processed by the 3-Day, it will be posted on the My Progress page of the walker’s Participant Center, under Donation History. The donation type will be listed as “offline unconfirmed.” At this point, the amount of the matching gift will count toward your fundraising minimum. To view the donor name associated with each matching gift, please visit the participant’s personal fundraising webpage where matching gifts can be viewed on the scrolling honor roll.
