Company Matching Gifts
Many companies have matching gift programs that multiply the philanthropic efforts of their employees. These programs offer an easy way to double or triple your donation to the School.
If your employer offers a 1:1 match, its matching gift will equal the amount you give. For example, if you make a gift of $100, your employer will also give $100, making the total gift worth $200. While 1:1 matches are the most common, some companies match at other ratios including 0.5:1 ($0.50 for every $1 given by the donor), or even a triple match of 3:1 whereby the matching company gives $3 for every $1 given by the donor.
Some companies will also match gifts made by retirees of the company, or match gifts made by the spouses of their company employees.

If your or your spouse’s employer is on the list, you can contact your human resources department for a simple form to complete and send to the Adler School with your contribution. We will take care of the rest.
If you don’t see your or your spouse’s employer listed, please check with your human resources department to inquire if there is a matching gift program, and if the Adler School qualifies for it.
