Matching gifts from corporations are a substantial and welcome way for donors to help Prep obtain additional funds. Matching gifts, directed for the same purpose as your gift, will be counted as a contribution over and above your personal gift or pledge payment. Depending on your employer, your gift could be matched 1:1, 2:1, and sometimes 3:1. If you work at a matching gift company and want to multiply your gift to Prep, please do the following:
• Obtain a matching gift form from your company's matching gift coordinator, who is usually located in your department/office of human resources. Some companies offer this service on-line.
• Complete and sign the form.
• Enclose the form in the envelope with your gift to Fairfield Prep.
The Development Office will verify the gift and form. The form will then be returned to your company, which will then issue a matching gift contribution to Prep. If you are not sure if your company has a matching gift program, please check with your human resource department. If you have already sent in a gift to Prep, but forgot to complete a matching gift form, it's not too late to send it in. Simply send us your completed matching gift form along with the approximate date and amount of your gift and we'll do the rest!
