Gift Matching

Many companies sponsor matching gift programs that will match charitable contributions made by their employees. Some even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. These programs are a great way for companies to support higher education and a chance for you to double or even triple your gift!

Gift matching procedures vary from company to company. The following example is typical:
  • An employee obtains a matching gift form from the employer, usually from the human resources department or website.
  • After completing the form, the employee sends it, along with the donation, to Oakland University.
  • The university certifies on the form that it has received the gift and meets the company's guidelines for receiving a matching gift.
  • The university returns the form to the company.
  • The company verifies eligibility of the employee and gift recipient and sends a check to Oakland University.
You can search this online database of thousands of companies to see if your employer sponsors a matching gift program. To find out if you are eligible for this benefit, enter the name of your employer here:

If you are eligible, this search function will provide details on how to initiate a matching gift with your employer. Most companies have matching gift forms available through their personnel office that you fill out and mail to us. We do the rest!
