Matching Gifts


Wouldn't it be nice if your employer worked for you?
Many employers offer a matching gift program to eligible employees. If you or your spouse works for a matching gift company, your gift to Fordham Law may be doubled or tripled simply by completing a form that is available from your employer.

How does the matching gift program work?
When you make a gift to Fordham Law, your employer makes a gift in your name as well. For example, if you make a gift of $250, your employer may contribute a corresponding gift ranging from $250–$750, depending on your company’s matching policy.

What are the advantages?
As a donor, you will be credited with the total contribution, including your corporate match. Not only does the size of your gift increase, but you will be recognized in the giving category of you and your company’s total gift.

How do I know if my employer matches gifts?
Visit our matching gift search engine to find out if your employer matches your charitable gifts. If they do, you’ll be able to view your company's guidelines and procedures for matching gifts. Please work with your employer to ensure the matching gift is properly issued.
