Matching GIfts

Many companies will match the contributions that employees (possibly even retired employees or spouses) make to philanthropic and educational groups recognized by the IRS.

You can double - sometimes triple - your gift through matching gift programs. Check with your company's personnel or human resource office about their matching gift program. Please note that matching gifts do not increase your charitable deduction, but they are used to determine your total giving to the college.

To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please enter your employer's name in the search box below.

If your company is eligible, simply request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest. The impact of your gift to our organization may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

Note: Matching gifts may be not be applied to personal pledges, nor may they result from contributions to athletic programs.
