Many businesses and corporations match emplooyee contributions to Augustana. Matching gifts are credited to the same fund as the donor's gift and generally match at a ratio of one half to three times the amount. Some companies also match gifts given by spouses or retirees.
A match is applied for through your employer, either through a paper form or an online portal. Regardless of the method used, the end result is the same--Augustana benefits twice from the donor's generosity! Donors who have their gifts matched receive recognition for the value of their own gift plus the value of the matching gift.
Does your employer offer a matching gift program? We invite you to use our online search directory on this page to find out. This directory includes more than 17,000 employer-matching programs, and many of the matching gift forms are provided for downloading and printing right off the directory.
