You may be able to leverage your gift to the University of Houston by taking advantage of your employer’s corporate matching program. Many corporations offer matching gifts to support their employees’ charitable giving. In 2020, over 1,300 donors took advantage of their employer’s corporate matching to bring in an additional $1.6 million for student scholarships, departmental programs and other academic needs.
Find your employer, review their matching guidelines, and click on the form button to start the matching, process.
We thank you for your support and investment in the University of Houston. For any questions related to corporate matching please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone us at (713) 743-6366.
