Matching Your Gift
Financial contributions from supporters of Living Room help us to continue providing life-sustaining housing resources and assistance to people living with HIV/AIDS who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. With your support, we are able to strongly impact the lives of those who walk through our doors in desperate need of a safe, affordable place to call home. We invite you to maximize the impact of your giving and make an even greater difference in the lives of others by asking your employer to match your donation to the Living Room.

What are matching gifts?
Companies that have a matching gifts program may match contributions from employees to the Living Room. It is a great way to increase support of our housing programs!

How do I find out if my employer has a matching gifts program?
It's simple! Contact your company's human resources department. If your employer has a matching gifts program, you should also ask if a contribution to Living Room qualifies for a matching gift. If so, you should request a matching gift application to complete.

What donations to Living Room qualify for matching grants?
Contributions from employees (and sometimes spouses and retirees) of the company offering the matching gifts program qualify for a company match.

Do matching gifts from the employer count toward individual gifts?
No, matching gifts are recorded as gifts from the company. Most companies require a signed statement from Living Room that the individual requesting the matching gift will not receive any benefits from the matching gift.

How are matching gift forms submitted to the Living Room?
If Living Room qualifies for a matching gift, complete the employee portion of the form and send the form and personal donation to:
      Living Room, Inc.
      341 Ponce de Leon Avenue
      Atlanta, GA 30308

Volunteer for Living Room

Living Room has long believed that one of its greatest assets is the role volunteers play in the organization. We have been blessed over the years in having an unbelievable group of volunteers, many of whom started off as Living Room clients wanting to give back and help others in need. Our volunteers help in a variety of ways depending on their interests and the needs of the organization. The one thing they all have in common is a desire to help people with nothing expected in return. We are currently looking to expand our volunteer force in order to better serve our clients. If you are interested in applying or would like more information about volunteering, please email Chuck Bowen and let him know you’d like to join the Living Room team!
