Gift Matching

Double or triple the impact of your gift!

Last year alone, Gustavus received more than $225,000 in matching gifts. Many employers and organizations make contributions to Gustavus in the form of matching gifts. When you make a gift to Gustavus, your company and/or your spouse's company may match that amount with a contribution of its own. Some companies may even match gifts made by retirees.
