Matching Gifts

Supplement your gift by taking advantage of your employer's matching gift program. It is a way to quickly and easily increase your gift to the university while boosting your share of philanthropy's greatest benefit: personal satisfaction.


More than 33,000 companies match charitable gifts made by their employees, retirees and board members.

Search our online database to find out if your (or your spouse's) employer matches. The search engine will also tell you exactly how to take advantage of this opportunity.

Whether the ratio is 1:1, 2:1, 3:1 or more, matching gifts allow:

  • you to significantly increase your contribution at no additional cost to you;
  • your employer to encourage your philanthropic spirit;
  • the university to successfully pursue its mission of academic excellence.
