Matching Gifts

Do you know how to double your annual gift to NMC? Without increasing your personal contribution? And still receive credit for the entire amount?

It's called a Matching Gift donation and is sponsored by thousands of corporations throughout the United States. Designed to benefit educational institutions, employers match charitable contributions made by their employees to the schools of their choice.

Normally, employers give dollar-for-dollar matches of their employees' contributions. However, it is not unusual for employers to double the amount of their employees' contributions. Some employers may even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. The amount of the match, payment schedule, employee eligibility, requirements, and access to forms are at the sole discretion of each employer.

If your employer offers a matching gift benefit, request a copy of their matching gift form, complete the form, sign it, and send it to the NMC Foundation with your gift.

It's that simple. We will submit verification of your gift, along with the request for the matching gift, to your employer. In our donor records, you will be credited for the total of your personal contribution and your employer's matching gift.
