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.

Thrivent Financial for Lutherans

At this time, Thrivent Financial for Lutherans (formerly Lutheran Brotherhood and Aid Association for Lutherans) has discontinued their matching gift program. Thrivent will be replacing its matching gift program with a new charitable grant program, which allows eligible members to help Thrivent direct distributions as part of its charitable giving each year. This new program is called Thrivent Choice. Eligible members will receive a letter from Thrivent, explaining the amount of Choice Dollars that they will have to designate for 2010. You can also visit Thrivent’s’ website to find out more about the program. Please keep Gustavus in mind when you are designating your Choice Dollars.
