Welcome to the Official Site of The Y in Central Maryland Turkey Trot Charity 5K! We are excited to have you join us for this Thanksgiving morning tradition.

Adults, children and families from across the region come together to not only run (or walk, jog, stroll), but to raise funds so that children living in poverty in Central Maryland have access to Y programs that will forever shape their lives.

Thank you for being part of something good on Thanksgiving Morning!

Fundraising: Employee Matching

Turkey Trotters across the region have been lacing up their tennis shoes, breathing in the cool Autumn air, pounding the pavement and fundraising with their online pages and paper donation forms. Every runner is aiming to raise at least $100. Here we have given you ideas on how to raise $500 and today we are going to tell you how to increase your donations by filling out a form.

Increase donations just by filling out a form? You are thinking - "No way!" "Scam!", "Impossible!". Well it is true and a great way to increase the donations you make to others or others make to you. How so? A lot of companies offer "Matching Gifts". If you donate to the Y of Central Maryland, your company may double the impact of your dollars by matching the donation.

How can you make this happen? Ask you HR Department, fill out the form, and smile.

If you have any general questions about employer matching programs, please leave us a question in the comment section.
