matching grant application program guidelines
How It Works
Eligible employees may contribute to arts and culture nonprofits or to accredited educational institutions and the company will match the donation according to pre-set match ratios and limits that vary by division.
Who Can Participate
All regular, benefits-eligible, United States-paid employees of Time Warner Inc. and its participating divisions and subsidiaries may participate (including full-time, part-time, expatriate and contract employees who are benefits-eligible).
Participating divisions include: Time Warner Corporate, HBO, Synapse, Time Inc., Turner Broadcasting System and Warner Bros.
How To Apply
Employee: Fill out part i; mail your contribution and the entire form to the designated organization.
Organization: Complete and countersign part ii, thereby certifying that the contribution has been received and is eligible under this program. The entire form with required documents should be mailed to:
Time Warner Matching Grants Program P.O. Box 8449 Princeton, NJ 08543-8449
If the application is approved, the matching funds will be sent directly to the nonprofit organization within six to eight weeks with an e-mailed notification to the employee (when applicable).
Please note that Matching Grant totals are calculated on a calendar year basis using the date that the employee made the contribution. For example, if an employee used the Matching Grant program to make a contribution to her alma mater in December 2005 and the match was mailed to the university eight weeks later in January 2006, the match will be credited against her 2005 match limit.
All application materials become the property of Time Warner and will not be returned. The Company reserves the right to change or terminate the program at will.
