Employee Matching Gift Programs

Many corporations sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made to higher education by their employees. Matching gift programs provide employees the opportunity to double, triple or quadruple the value of their gift to the college. Find out if your employer has a matching gift policy. If your employer does match gifts to higher education, please contact your Human Resource department for information or the necessary matching gift form.
