How to Make Your Gift

Company 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, and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest. The impact of your gift to our school may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please go to the Leaders and Best Matching Gift page.
