Matching Gifts

Depending on your employer, you may be able to double or even triple the amount of your gift, and it won’t cost you another dime. Many companies offer a matching gift program that will significantly amplify what you have given, and matching gifts from employers are credited to your individual giving record. Every organization has its own policies and matching gift forms, so be sure to check with your company’s human resources department. If you are retired, you may also be eligible.

Please contact Director of Gift Records Maryann Errico at 973-408-3233 or merrico@drew.edu with questions about matching gifts to Drew.
