For a donation to be eligible for a match, they must first adhere to the impact eligibility criteria detailed here.
Further, for this WalmartGivesNWA program, only associates of Walmart are eligible for matching donations.
There are currently two ways of verifying the associates' role with Walmart through the GivePulse system.
- When an associate log into the system via single-sign-on (SSO) their associate role with the program is automatically verified.
- When an associate logs into the system user their Walmart email through the sign-up workflow, GivePulse will sync the new users with the associate list provided by Walmart every afternoon.
If you made a donation through your personal email, this donation will not be eligible for a match until you add your Walmart email to your account, and then wait for the sync to happen in the afternoon.
If you made a donation through your work email but did not log in via SSO, the donation will also not be eligible for a match until the daily sync happens in the afternoon.
For best practice, always log in through your SSO first before making a donation to ensure your donations will be eligible for match.
