Many employers (and former employers, for retirees) match the charitable gifts of their employees. You can check whether your employer matches gifts by visiting the Matching Gifts page.

You can also ask your human resources department if your employer matches charitable gifts. If it does match gifts, please obtain, complete and submit a matching-gift form (or fill one out online, if your employer offers that option) to multiply the value of your gift. 

If you have questions about matching gifts, please contact Nancy Seifert, (651) 962-6946 or (800) 328-6946 Ext. 2-6946 or nancy.seifert@stthomas.edu.
