Matching Gifts

What is better than a generous gift to UCR? A gift that has been doubled or tripled thanks to a corporate matching gift! Many companies offer a matching-gift benefit to their employees to inspire charitable giving in support of education. Sometimes the gifts of retirees, members of the board of directors, and spouses are also eligible.

How Do I Get a Matching Gift?

Contact your Human Resources office or benefits manager and ask for a matching-gift application.

After your gift is verified by UCR, your employer will send an additional gift on your behalf!
