Matching Gifts

Make your generous donations go even farther.

When you give to UNC Asheville, every dollar makes a difference. Each year, many of our donors extend their giving through generous matching gift programs by taking the time to file a request through their employers. Matching gift programs are charitable giving programs set up by businesses in which the company matches donations made by employees to eligible nonprofit organizations. Some companies even extend this benefit to their board members and retirees as well; perhaps your company is one of those.

For example, if a donor works for one major national bank and donates $250 to UNC Asheville, the bank itself will "double the donation" by writing a check for $250 to the university. You may be able to double or even triple your gift through your spouse’s or your employer’s matching gift program.

You may also try searching your company’s website to find the policy and forms needed. Please send us your completed form with your gift and we’ll take it from there. Even if you have already made your gift, you can still apply for a match.

Please mail your completed form provided by your employer to:

Director of Advancement Services

Asheville, NC 28804
