Matching Gifts

Many businesses and corporations match employee contributions to Augustana. Matching gifts are generally credited to the same fund as your gift and can double or even triple the impact of your gift! Some companies even match gifts given by spouses or retirees. 

A match is applied for through your employer either through a paper form or an online portal. We invite you to use the directory at right to search for your employer and your spouse's employer. The directory includes more than 17,000 employer-matching programs, and many of the matching gift forms can be downloaded through the directory.

You will receive donor recognition for your own gift plus the value of the matching gift. Beginning July 1, 2015, match recognition is given in the fiscal year the match is received.
