Matching Gifts

Grow your gift - maximize with a match!

Many companies set aside philanthropic dollars for higher education and allocate those funds through matching gift programs. These programs allow employees, and sometimes retirees and directors, of the company to make a contribution to an institution which is then matched by a corporate gift. Matching levels vary from one company to another, but regardless of the match percentage, these gifts represent a significant source of funds for financial aid and campus enhancements for Woods students.

Although procedures for matching gift programs vary, matching gift forms are usually obtained through the employer's human resource office. The employee makes a gift to SMWC then completes the employer's matching gift documentation. The rest is handled by the College and the employer.
