Many businesses set aside philanthopic dollars for higher education and allocate those funds through matching gift programs. These programs allow employees, and sometimes retirees and directors, of the company to make a contribution to an institution which is then matched by a corporate gift. Matching levels vary from one company to another, but regardless of the match percentage, these gifts represent a significant source of funds for scholarships and grants for MSU students.
If you or your spouse work for a company that provides matching gifts, please obtain the company's matching gift form from either the business office or the personnel office. A matching gift program will double or even triple your gift amount and qualify you for a higher level of recognition.
