VWR Matching Program

When creating the VWR Foundation, VWR (NASDAQ: VWR) wanted to identify a way to support its associates while also providing a connection between them and the VWR Foundation. To encourage a community of giving, VWR established the VWR Matching Program.

Through this program, VWR will match the donation made by a VWR associate (including retired associates) to a participating organization – not once, but twice! A matching donation will be made to the participating organization, as well as the VWR Foundation. For example, if an associate donates $100 to a participating organization, VWR will donate $100 to the same organization and an additional $100 to the VWR Foundation.

VWR surveys its associates on a regular basis to identify potential non-profit organizations to add to the Matching Program’s list of participating organizations. Based on the results, the VWR Foundation selects the top organizations that are strategically aligned with its mission to add to the Matching Program. The VWR Matching Program currently includes 23 participating organizations.

VWR will match donations up to $1,000 per associate, with a Company cap of $250,000 annually for this program. Associates should consult their local government for tax law guidelines.
