What is a matching gift?
You can double your gift to Mount St. Joseph University with a matching gift and make your donation go even farther. You may be eligible if you are an employee or retiree, or even if your spouse works for a matching gift company. Over 8,000 companies and subsidiaries match employee gifts to colleges and universities.
Check to see if your company offers matching gifts, or call your human resources department.
After you give to the University, your employer (or your spouse’s employer) makes an additional gift. They verify the amount and send the Mount a check. You win, the Mount wins, and the company wins!
How do I request a matching gift?
Request a Matching Gift Form from your employer’s human resources office (often available online). Fill out part one, and send it to the Mount with your gift. The University completes part two and sends the form back to the company, which sends the Mount a check, usually for the same amount as your gift. Some companies will even double the amount of your gift.
What type of information do I have to provide to my employer?
A typical form asks for your name, social security number, company division or location, and the date and amount of your gift.
Will my matching gift have an impact?
Mount donors take advantage of company matching gifts, resulting in an additional $30,000-40,000 for the University each year – enough to cover four major scholarships. Imagine how much more could be done if every eligible employee took advantage of a company match!
