We are excited to announce that the Frontstream Fundraising Pro platform is now integrated with HEPData’s matching gifts database. Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable donations made by their employees.
Available at no additional cost to Canadian and US Fundraising Pro clients, the HEPData integration allows donors on the Fundraising Pro platform to easily check if their employer offers matching gifts.
Enable/Disable HEPData Integration
Enabling HEPData for your organization is simple, just follow the steps outlined below.
- From the administrator console, click on the Configuration
- Click on HEPData.
- Click on Enable and then click Save.
Note: HEPData integration is only available for clients in Canada and USA.
Once you have enabled HEPData, a “Matching Gift” area will be visible on the donation pages for all your events as shown in the image below.
The donor can then search for their employer by typing their employer name into the search box and clicking search. If the employer is found, the donor can then click on the employer name to see detail instructions about the matching gift eligibility and the process that the need to follow in order for the charity to receive the matching gift.
It is important to note that the HEPData integration is a means for providing donors with information about their employers matching gift eligibility. The Fundraising Pro Application does not collect the matched gift.
Once the donor has found their employer they can confirm their selection (optional) by clicking on the My Employer button.
Note: The Matching Gift section is only available in English. If the language preference for the page is French, a matching gifts section will not be visible.

- Go to the Donate page and in the editor you can either edit the existing instructions or add content below the search box as shown in the image below.
