Matching Gifts

Many employers (and former employers, for retirees) match the charitable gifts of their employees. If you are a donor to St. Thomas, please ask your human resources department if your employer matches charitable gifts. If it does match gifts, please obtain, complete and submit a matching-gift form (or fill one out online, if your employer offers that option) to multiply the value of your gift. Check this list of matching-gift companies to see if yours is on it. It is not an exhaustive list, so if yours is not on it, please ask your human resources department if your employer matches charitable gifts.

If you have questions about matching gifts, please contact Sue Dolan, (651) 962-6946 or (800) 328-6946 Ext. 2-6946 or dola6966@stthomas.edu.
