Employee matching gifts are grants an employer makes to match its employees’ charitable contributions. Employee matching gifts often are dollar-for-dollar; however, some companies will give double or even triple the original donation. Some companies may also give matching gifts for employees’ volunteer efforts.
Although alumni, parents, friends, and institutional partners of Newman University all have their own compelling answer to this question, there are some overriding motivations that many of our donors share.
Our donors want to give back to the University that—in fundamental ways—helped make them who they are today.
They also want to give forward by helping the next generation of deserving students from around the world gain access to a Newman University education and helping our outstanding faculty and researchers add to the world’s store of knowledge. They also want to support Newman University’s interdisciplinary atmosphere and mission-driven studies, which are making lives better on both individual and societal levels.
You will find a list of companies with matching programs below. However, it is always best to check with your Human Resources department for specific information on whether they have a matching program and how to request a matching donation. If your company matches gifts and they are not listed, please let us know.
Thank you for considering Newman for your gift.
