Matching Gifts

Companies have various methods for matching gift request submissions, including online forms and paper forms that you submit to the University of Calgary. Many companies will match personal gifts, such as cash, stocks, marketable securities, and the value of your volunteer time. Companies may also match gifts from employee spouses, retirees, widows, widowers, and board members. 

Here's how to take part:

1.  - Check with your employer if your company has a matching gift program. If your company does not currently match employee donations, suggest they consider doing so.
2.  - Obtain a Matching Gift form and review the program guidelines to ensure that the University of Calgary is eligible to receive matching gifts from your employer.
3.  - Complete the donor section of the form and submit it, along with your cheque or credit card authorization, to:

University of Calgary
Attention: Annual Giving 
2500 University Dr NW
Calgary AB T2N 1N4

Matching Gift request forms can be sent separately from your donation, but cannot be completed until your donation has been verified.

That’s it! We will verify receipt and return the form to your company for matching funds on your behalf. The company will then send its matching donation directly to the University of Calgary.
