Many companies and foundations sponsor matching gift programs for their employees’ philanthropic interests. These companies may be willing to double or even triple the value of charitable gifts made by employees or their spouses. In these instances, you will be recognized for the full amount of your gift, plus any employer match.
To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please search this database.
Rutgers employees can make charitable contributions to the university by payroll deduction. To sign up, please visit this Rutgers University Foundation website.
