Many corporations and foundations encourage employees and retirees to contribute to nonprofit organizations through matching gift programs. These programs provide donors with an opportunity to increase the size of their gift with a match at 1:1, 2:1 and sometimes even 3:1. The employer match will also count toward your recognition gift club level.
To find out if your employer operates a matching gift program, please contact your human resources or personnel department. In most instances, all you must do to enroll is complete your employer's matching gift form and send it in along with your gift. The College and your employer will handle the rest.
Check our list of the corporate and foundation partners that matched their employees' gifts to Knox College in recent years.
