Matching Gifts

University Advancement

Over 15,000 companies match gifts

Many corporations match their employee, retiree, and/or volunteer gifts dollar-for-dollar (or more!). These companies have specific requirements governing the matching program. Please contact your Human Resources Department to determine if your company matches employee contributions.


How do I know if my company matches gifts?
Information regarding matching gift programs is normally available from your Human Resources Department. It's often available on a company's website, too. Some companies restrict matching gift designations or may limit gifts to particular social needs. Review your employer's specific policies regarding any limitations. At the bottom of this page is a list of companies that have recently made matching gifts.

What do I do if I learn that my company will match my gift?
Request a matching gift form and send the completed form to:
UW-River Falls Foundation
410 S 3rd Street
River Falls, WI 54022

How beneficial is my corporate match to UW-River Falls?
Your company's matching gift program gives you a chance to make a greater effect on our campus. In the past five years, the UW-River Falls Foundation has received $537,994 from donors who matched their gifts.

I am retiring, will my company continue to match my gift?
It's possible. Companies like 3M will match qualified retiree gifts. Review your employer's specific policies regarding any possible limitations.

What will the matching gift money support?
In most cases, it will follow your original gift designation. For example, if you support a specific campus project, the matching gift will go to that project.

Do I get credit for the matching gift?
You will receive a soft credit on your giving record for the matching gift amount we receive. These gifts count toward your total annual contribution. They are used to determine your qualifications for inclusion into our donor societies.

How will I know if you receive the matching gift?
We will send you a postcard when your gift is matched.
