Matching Gifts and Employee Giving

Many companies offer a matching gift program to encourage philanthropy among their employees. A matching gift is a great way for you to increase your contribution to support the children and families of George Mark Children’s House. Contact your human resources office to see if your company has a matching gift program and how you can participate.

For more information on how you can help us, email us at or call us at (510) 346-4624.

You can ensure the future of George Mark Children’s House by including George Mark in your legacy. You may designate George Mark Children’s House as a beneficiary in your will or trust, life insurance plan or retirement plan. Additionally, you may create a Charitable Gift Annuity, which will provide income to you each year during your lifetime, and ultimately benefit George Mark. For more information on planned giving opportunities, please download our Heart & Hope Builders brochure, or contact Ken Sommer, Director of Advancement, at
