You may be able to double, triple or quadruple the amount of your gift by taking advantage of a corporate matching program. Several companies offer retirees and widows of employees the same matching gift opportunities they offer current employees.
If your company has a program, you may be able to make a larger donation to A&M without further reducing your own assets and still receive a charitable deduction for the amount you give.
Donations your company might match could include a check, cash, a credit card or publicly traded securities.
Search our database to find out if your company will match your gift to the Texas A&M Foundation.
Some companies will also match volunteer time or gifts from retirees. Every organization has its own rules and matching gift forms, so be sure to check with your company’s human resources department.
