Matching Gifts

Many companies offer a matching gift program and will match any funds their employees donate to the University.  Generally, the employee must complete and sign a form provided by their company and submit it to University Advancement Gift Processing (CP-850) to verify receipt of the funds. UA Gift Processing will mail the completed form to the company who will process and send back the matching gift funds. To find out whether your employer or your spouse's employer offers a matching gift program, click here.
