Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees. Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. If your company is eligible, you can request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. Your gift may be doubled or possibly tripled, causing an even great impact at Lewis University!  Be sure and check the "my company will match my gift" box on our online donation form when making a gift.
