The Matching Gifts Program is designed to encourage our employees and
retirees to actively support nonprofit organizations within our communities.
This program also gives
employees and retirees a voice in selecting organizations to be funded by
Wisconsin Public Service Foundation — a
private, charitable foundation supporting
Minnesota Energy Resources and other
sister companies of Wisconsin Public Service.
Wisconsin Public Service Foundation will match $1 for each $1 of
eligible employee or retiree contributions. The minimum employee or retiree
contribution to any one organization that will be matched is $50. The
maximum match per fiscal year ending December 1 is $2,500 per employee and $2,000
Contributions to organizations in five categories may be eligible for matching
funds. Each organization must be located within the company's operating territory
and must be tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The
following categories are eligible for Matching Gifts:
- Arts and culture
- Community and neighborhood development
- Education (including accredited K-12 and post secondary educational institutions in the U.S.)
- Human services and health
An employee or retiree needs to submit a Matching
Gifts Form to the nonprofit organization by December 1 of each year.
