Matching Gifts

Matching gifts are offered by many corporations to encourage employees to make charitable contributions to eligible institutions, like the University of New Haven.

You may have an opportunity to double or, in some cases, even triple your financial support to the University. Many times, gifts from spouses or retirees also are eligible for a match.

How does the program work?
The matching gift procedure is very simple. There are two ways to claim a matching gift.

The first way is for an employee to obtain a matching gift form from their Human Resources department. After completing the form, employees can send their form accompanied by their gift to the University of New Haven. The University certifies on the form that it has received the gift. The University then returns the form to the company. The company verifies eligibility of the employee and sends a check to the University of New Haven.

The second method involves a paperless route where you register your contributions electronically on your company’s intranet site, if available.
