Over 1,000 companies match employee gifts to colleges and universities. Some companies match and exceed employee donations by as much as four-to-one. These programs allow companies to support education while emphasizing the interests and preferences of employees. By giving to the institutions that educated their employees, they express appreciation and ensure a continuing supply of well-prepared personnel.
The matching gift, resulting from the efforts of an alumnus or friend of the University, will be given to the donor's designated area unless company matching policies designate otherwise.
As you prepare to send your gift to Ferris, contact your company's human resource department to see if your employer matches gifts.
Ferris appreciates the extra effort required of matching gift donors. By enabling a matching gift, you increase the help available to the area of your choice. Should you have questions or require assistance regarding matching gift programs, please contact Advancement Services, Ferris State University, Prakken 101, 420 Oak Street, Big Rapids, MI 49307 or call (231)-591-3817.
