Corporate Gift Match

Maximize the impact of your gift through Corporate Gift Match!

 

On May 29, 2014, T.J. Wojnar, Jr ’80 presented a matching gift check of $188,172.84 to Rensselaer Provost Prabhat Hajela on behalf of ExxonMobil Foundation.

Rensselaer alumni and friends associated with ExxonMobil maximized their contribution to Rensselaer through the Foundation’s generous Educational Matching Gift Program. Initiated in 1962, the ExxonMobil Foundation’s Educational Matching Gift Program matches gifts to higher education on a 3-to-1 basis and has provided nearly $2 million in total support for Rensselaer throughout the years.

If you’ve made a gift to Rensselaer, we are grateful to the commitment you’ve demonstrated. But, did you know there is another way to make an even greater impact, without any additional cost to you?

You or your spouse may work for one of more than 22,000 companies that encourage and support employee philanthropy through corporate gift match programs. By completing a matching gift application, you can double the value of your gift. Further, if both you and your spouse work for companies with matching programs, you can even triple your giving dollars!
