Matching Gifts

A matching gift is one that a company donates to match the charitable gift of an employee (or their spouse/partner). Most often, corporations match charitable donations made by active employees however many also match for retirees as well. If you or your spouse/partner are associated with a matching gift company, your gift could double or even triple in amount, depending on the corporation’s policy. Please contact Maryann Errico, Director of Development Records, at 973-408-3233 or merrico@drew.edu with questions about matching gifts to Drew.
