Matching Gifts

You can increase your gift to U-M by making use of your company’s matching gift program. If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, complete and sign it, and send it in with your gift. We will do the rest. The impact of your gift to U-M may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

Federal Tax ID Number

Your gift may provide you with federal and state income tax benefits. Your state may also allow a credit or deduction. The University of Michigan has 501(c)(3) nonprofit tax exempt status; our federal tax ID number is 38-6006309. As always, you should consult a qualified tax professional for tax advice.
