Did you know that many businesses offer a matching gift program as a part of their employee benefits package? These programs allow you, the employee, to direct your organization's philanthropy to the benefit of Fairfield. If you or your spouse work for or have retired from a matching gift company, you might also be eligible to take advantage of this benefit and perhaps double or even triple your support to Fairfield University. As a donor, your gift society membership will include credit for matching gift participation.
How does the program work?
Each time you make a gift to Fairfield, remember to either include your company's matching gift form or call their 800 number. Your employer will then direct a donation to Fairfield as well. For example, if you give a $200 donation to the University, your employer may contribute a match ranging from 50% ($100) to 200% ($400) of your gift.
Unsure how your company runs its program? Contact your Human Resources Department. Completed forms can be sent to: Development Services, Fairfield University, 1073 North Benson Road, Fairfield, CT 06824.
