Because many companies offer matching gift programs for employees who donate to institutions of higher learning, many Franklin College alumni and friends have made major gifts to the college. The results have been significant.
If a company participates in this program, it means it is willing to donate a gift to FC that matches or equals an employee’s or retiree’s personal contribution without any additional obligation on the part of the individual donor.
While most companies offer a 1:1 matching ratio, some companies double or even triple an employee’s or retiree’s gift! This program clearly enables donors to increase the impact of their contributions to Franklin College.
For example, if your gift this year is $250 and:
- your company has a 1:1 match, Franklin will receive an additional $250 and you will be listed as a $500 donor!
- your company has a 2:1 match, Franklin will receive an additional $500 and you will be listed as a $750 donor!
