Matching Gifts


Many companies, institutions, and organizations offer a matching-gift benefit to their employees to inspire charitable giving. Sometimes the gifts of retirees, members of the board of directors, and spouses are also eligible. Please contact your employer's Human Resource or Development office to determine if they match employee donations and if NAFSA is eligible to receive a matching gift.

If your employer is not listed, this does not mean that they do not participate—just contact them and ask! Some companies without formal programs will match your gift, if you ask. For more information from NAFSA, contact Gail Hochhauser.
