Many employers offer a matching gift program to eligible employees. If you or your spouse work for a matching gift company, your gift to The Brooklyn Prep Alumni Association may be doubled or tripled simply by completing a form that will be available from your employer.
Some common questions about giving:
How does the matching gift program work?
When you make a gift to Brooklyn Prep, your employer makes a gift in your name as well. For example, if you make a gift of $250 to The Brooklyn Prep Alumni Association, your employer may contribute a corresponding gift ranging from $250 - $500, depending on your companys matching policy.
What are the advantages?
As a donor, you will be credited with the total contribution, including the corporate contribution.
How do I know if my employer matches gifts?
Check with your Human Resources department for advice on this matter.
Whenever making important decisions regarding charitable giving or estate planning it is always best to consult your attorney and tax consultant.
