Many companies encourage employees to be philanthropic by sponsoring matching gift programs that match employee gifts to colleges and universities. Most companies match dollar for dollar and some will even match more. So the impact of your gift may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
Matching gifts go to the same programs to which you designated your gift unless company policy requires otherwise. Matching gifts count toward your membership in donor recognition clubs.
Most companies require the employee to obtain the company’s matching gift form (usually from personnel or human resources), complete the form, and send a copy of the form to IPFW along with your gift. If your company matches you may be able to access the forms directly through the search provided on the tab above labeled "Is Your Employer a Matching Company."
