Matching Gifts at UIW

Many University of the Incarnate Word donors are employed by companies that encourage donations to higher education. Matching-gift companies work with employees to offer additional funding to the specific UIW programs supported by their employees. Donors who wish to support The University of the Incarnate Word can provide more substantial support with the assistance of a matching-gift company.

Companies that offer corporate matching contribute a significant part of the dollars raised for UIW’s annual giving programs by adding to an employee’s higher education gift.

Donors who wish to endow scholarships or other gifts can do so at a significantly lower cost with their employer’s assistance.

Retired Employees

Many companies also match gifts made by retired employees. Corporations often have special qualifying processes for individuals who retired from their company, including different matching ratios. Contact your former employer for more information.

Next Steps

By taking a few minutes to complete the necessary steps, donors can double or triple their gift to make an even greater impact at UIW.

  • Contact your company’s matching-gift administrator, human resources department, or public relations office.
  • They will provide information about gift matching and instructions to complete the process.
  • Send your company’s corporate matching form and your gift to:

The University of the Incarnate Word
