Matching Gifts

Did you know it may be possible to double or even triple the value of your gift to Maritime if your company matches employee contributions to higher education? Taking advantage of this benefit is a great way to maximize the impact of your donation!

Does my company match gifts?

Ask your Human Resources Department what your company's policy is on matching gifts. 

How do I get my gift matched?

Every company has its own guidelines, but most corporate procedures are very simple:

  1. Request a Matching Gift Form from your company’s Matching Gift Administrator, Human Resources, or Public Relations office. They will provide you with instructions and the form (if applicable) you need.

  2. Complete and submit the form to Maritime College, along with your gift.

  3. Maritime will verify the completed form and return it to the company.

  4. If your gift meets the company's matching program criteria, they will issue a matching gift contribution to Maritime College.

When giving online, please send only the Matching Gift Form to the address below. We will process it with your online gift.

 

All completed forms and your personal gift should be sent to:

Diana Pagan
Office of University Relations
Maritime College, State University of New York
6 Pennyfield Avenue
Throggs Neck, NY 10465
