Corporate matching gifts are a great way for Pacific Lutheran University alumni, parents, and friends to maximize personal contributions to the University and increase the impact of their gift. By taking advantage of a company’s matching gift benefit, you may be able to double or even triple the amount of a contribution.
Some employers also match volunteer hours for their employees!
Last year, more than $84,000 was directed to Pacific Lutheran from corporate matching gift programs!
