Many companies set aside philanthropic dollars for higher education and allocate those funds through matching gift programs. These companies match employee, retiree and family contributions to educational institutions, doubling or sometimes tripling the amount of your gift. If you work for (or are a retiree of) a company that participates in a matching program, you can choose to contribute to the LEO Foundation and to the college of your choice, 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 scholarship funds for students.

Although procedures for matching gift programs vary, matching gift forms can usually be obtained through the employer’s human resources department. The employee can complete and submit the signed form with a check made payable to the LEO Foundation.
