Matching Gifts

Wouldn't it be nice if your employer worked for you?

Increase the impact of your gift by matching your gift through your employer.

Did you know that many employers offer a matching gift program to eligible employees? If you or your spouse work for a matching gift company, your gift to Manhattanville may be doubled or tripled simply by completing a form that will be available from your employer. Matching gifts from corporations and foundations play an important role in the success of our fundraising initiatives.

Some common questions and answers about matching gifts:

How does the matching gift program work?
When you make a gift to Manhattanville, your employer makes a gift in your name as well. For example, if you make a gift of $250 to Manhattanville, your employer may contribute a corresponding gift ranging from $250 - $500, depending on your company's matching policy.

What are the advantages?
As a donor, you will be credited with the total contribution, including the corporate match. Not only does the size of your gift increase, but the matching portion of your gift could make you eligible for President's Circle membership. For example, a gift of $500 that is matched dollar for dollar by a donor's company will increase the gift to the $1,000 necessary for President's Circle membership.

How do I take advantage of my company's matching gift program?

Individual donors must supply Manhattanville with a matching gift form once their personal gift has been made. Matching gift forms may be obtained from your employer. Enter your company name in the box below to see if your company has a matching gift program. Then, simply request a form from your HR contact or fill out the form on your corporate website and we'll take care of the rest.
