Through your company’s corporate matching gift program, you can easily maximize your contribution to WPI - sometimes by two or three times the amount of your gift! More than 1,300 companies nationwide sponsor matching gift programs, matching the charitable contributions their employees make to their alma maters and other nonprofit organizations.
If your employer has a matching gift program, we urge you to take advantage of this benefit, so that you may have an even greater impact on the university. Simply complete the application for a matching gift, and we'll do the rest.
Since the beginning of fiscal year 2008, WPI has received almost $900,000 in corporate matching gifts to the Annual Fund. How did these contributions impact WPI? Gifts to the Annual Fund provide the critical resources that help WPI:
If you are not sure if your employer has a matching gift program, or you would like more information about your employer’s matching gift policy, use this searchable matching gift database to find out.
If you, your spouse, or your partner currently work for, or retired from, a matching gift company, you can be eligible to request a matching gift. Most company's request forms can be found in a .pdf format in our searchable matching gift database. If you cannot find the information on our site, forms can also be found in your company's human resources department or on your company's website. Just complete your portion of the form, sign it, and attach it with your gift to our office. It is also important to remember that over the course of the last several years, many companies have changed the eligibility guidelines for matching gifts, so please review the information carefully before making a gift you wish to be matched.

Every year, WPI receives significant funds through the matching gift program. We are grateful to all of the individuals who take the extra step to have their donation matched every year. In some cases, the combination of a donor's gift and the corporate match, which they initiated, will grant access to certain leadership societies at WPI. In annual giving societies, such as the President's Circle, matching gifts are included as part of membership criteria. However, for the Presidential Founders, 1865 Society, and other lifetime giving societies, membership criteria requires gifts from personal funds and does not include matching gifts. Please note that personal funds are also required for any naming opportunities at WPI.
