Employer Matching Gifts Program

matching giftsWhat's better than a private gift to UC San Diego? A private gift with even more impact! You can double or triple your gift to the campus—at no extra cost to you.

You may not be aware that many companies will match their employees' (and sometimes even employee spouses') donations to nonprofit organizations—including universities—to significantly expand the value of an individual's charitable gift.

Thanks to generous donors and the philanthropy of their employers, over 500 matching gifts valued at $250,000 were directed to UC San Diego through employer matching gift programs during the fiscal year 2010-2011.

It is with the support of individuals, corporations and foundations that UC San Diego—recognized as one of the top 10 public universities by U.S. News & World Report and ranked number one in the nation for public service by the Washington Monthly—can continue to make a positive impact locally, nationally and globally.
