Matching Gifts

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. 

Impact of Matching Gifts

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:  

  • Enroll outstanding students regardless of their financial circumstances
  • Attract the finest faculty
  • Provide state-of-the-art living and learning facilities on our beautiful campus
  • Continue its long tradition of academic innovation

Your Company's Matching Gift Policy

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.

For more information or if you have specific questions about making a matching gift to WPI, contact the Office of Annual Giving at +1-877-WPI-FUND or giving@wpi.edu.

WPI's Matching Gift Policy

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 our annual giving society (President's Circle) and our Lifetime Giving Societies, matching gifts are included as part of membership criteria. Please note that personal funds are also required for any naming opportunities at WPI.
