Matching Gifts



Double your impact

Many employers have programs to match their employees' donations to higher education. These matching gifts are an important source of funding for McGill and an easy way for you to increase the financial impact that your contribution has on the University and its students – all at no extra cost to you!

An opportunity not to be missed

Matching gifts are an integral and untapped source of fundraising dollars for McGill. If every donor who is able to have their gifts matched actually took advantage of their program, the University will have an additional $750,000 each year to inject directly into campus life!

Eligible donors for a corporate matching gift program may include:

  1. Current, full-time or part-time employees
  2. Retired employees
  3. Spouses of employees
  4. Widows and/or widowers of former employees
  5. Members of the board of directors

 

Easy as 1, 2, 3

They give where you give

Please note that matching gifts will be directed to support the same area of McGill as your personal gift, unless your company’s policy specifies otherwise. Gifts of currency and often gifts of publicly traded securities are eligible to be matched. Company matching gift policies vary; consult your employer’s policy for additional details.
