(verser une) contribution égale/équivalente
Explanation:
système assez classique : pour toute somme de 100€ versée, l'employeur versera une contribution équivalente ("matching donation")

"In philanthropic giving, foundations and corporations often give money to non-profit entities in the form of a matching gift.[2] Corporate matches often take the form of employee matching gifts, which means that if an employee donates to a nonprofit, the employee's corporation will donate money to the same nonprofit according to a predetermined match ratio (usually 1:1). For foundations, matching gifts are in the form of grants made directly to nonprofits if that the nonprofit raises a set quantity of money before the grant is bestowed. The benefit of foundation matching grants is that they provide greater incentive leverage when a nonprofit is fundraising from its constituency. If a foundation approves a 1:1 matching grant, donors know that their dollars will be doubled. On the other side, foundations who give matching grants receive assurance of the nonprofit's capacity to raise adequate funds."
