Matching Gifts

What are matching gifts?

Companies across the nation support causes that are important to their employees by matching charitable contributions. This means you can increase your impact and make your contributions go further at Illinois Wesleyan University by collaborating with your company’s matching gift program.   


Will my employer match my charitable gift?

More than a thousand companies offer varying levels of corporate match for their employees' philanthropic interests. Best of all, you are recognized for the full amount of your own gift plus any resulting corporate match. 

To find out if your employer’s matching gift program collaborates with IWU, enter your company name in the box displayed below. 

If your employer participates: Fill out the requested prompts after clicking "click here to have your gift matched!", request a matching gift form from your Human Resources office, complete, sign, and send it along to our office. We will do the rest. The impact of your gift may be doubled or tripled! Some companies even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
