Matching Gifts

Make a Gift


Matching Gifts

Matching gifts are a great way for alumni, parents and friends to maximize personal contributions to the University and increase the impact of the gift. By taking advantage of your company's matching gift benefit, you may be able to double or even triple the amount of your contribution.

Matching gifts are a valuable source of funds for WKU. More than 9,000 companies (including parent companies and their subsidiaries) in the United States provide support to higher education through employee matching gift programs. Your entire gift -- your contribution and your employer's match -- qualifies you for membership in our annual giving levels. In addition, your company's match is applied directly to the same designated areas as your gift. 

Contact your company's personnel or human resources office to confirm if they offer a matching gift program.  Return your company's matching gift form to:

WKU Advancement Services
292 Alumni Ave., Suite 307 

Bowling Green, KY 42101

Upon receipt of the completed form, we will verify your matching gift eligibility and return the form to your employer.

 If you have questions regarding matching gifts, please contact us toll free at 1-888-WKU-GIVE or via e-mail at
