Matching Gifts:

Have you checked to see if your employer (or your spouse’s) participates in a Matching Gift Program? Matching your gift is easy; just follow these three steps:

  1. Obtain a matching gift form from your employer. Many companies match the charitable contributions of their employees, spouses of employees, retirees, and directors or board members. The amount of the match, payment schedule, employee eligibility, and other restrictions are at the discretion of each employer. Check with your company’s human resources or community relations office to obtain a form and guidelines for matching gifts.
  2. Complete your portion of the matching gift form.
  3. Mail your gift and matching gift form to The Fund for Babson (see address above).

Thank you for your interest and generous support!
