An effective way to increase the value of your gift is through your employer's matching gift program. Thousands of companies recognize the importance of philanthropy and encourage their employees to support charitable organizations. In many cases, companies will double or even triple the amount of an employee's original gift. Companies may also match the gifts made by retired employees and spouses.
To find out if your company has a matching gift program, contact your human resources department. If your company does participate, request a matching gift form and mail the completed form along with your gift to the office of Institutional Advancement and we will complete the process. For more information on matching gifts, please contact Minnie Hales, Director of Donor Records, at 910.277.5664.
