Corporate Matching Gifts

If you work at one of the 1,000-plus U.S. companies that have matching-gift programs, you can dramatically increase the impact your gift makes for the College of Engineering.

These companies recognize the importance of private support for higher education, and will match their employees' gifts, often 1:1 and sometimes more. The entire gift - your contribution and your employer's match - is credited to you and counts toward membership in one of MSU's donor recognition societies (Please note that the company's matching gift credit is for MSU recognition only and not for tax purposes). Please check with your employer's personnel office to see if your company offers this benefit.

A step by step guide to a successful matching gift:

Step 1: Make your gift to the MSU College of Engineering.

Checks can be mailed to:
Office of Development
College of Engineering
Michigan State University
3536 Engineering Building
East Lansing, MI 48824-1226

Or, you can make your credit card gift on-line safely and securely. Be sure to complete the matching gift section at the bottom of the input screen.

Step 2:
Complete your company's matching gift form.

Most companies have matching gift forms readily available for their employees. In addition, MSU has some forms available on-line, available for printout. Click here to see a list of the forms we have available.
