Do You Match?
You can double the impact of your generosity by participating in the matching gift program. Many companies encourage philanthropy by matching their employees’ gifts to universities such as William Jessup University. Most match the gift dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount. Participating companies may also recognize donations made by retirees and/or spouses of employees.
Generally, a matching gift will go toward the same program as your donation unless your company’s policy requires otherwise. The matched funds sent to WJU will count toward your total giving and may qualify you for membership in an upper-level WJU Giving Club.
How does it work?
Most companies require the employee to complete a Matching Gift Form (available from your HR department). A few companies allow employees to phone in a matching gift request or submit it online. If your company requires a form, complete your portion and send it to WJU and we’ll do the rest on your behalf. For more information, please call (916) 577-1800.
