Matching Gifts

Corporate matching gifts are a great way to increase the impact of your gift to USF. By taking advantage of your company’s matching gift benefit, you may be able to double or even triple the amount of your contribution.

While matching gift procedures vary by company, here’s a general process to follow to have your gift matched:

  • Request a matching gift form from your company (typically from the human resources office).
  • Complete and submit the form to USF.

              University of San Francisco
              Attn: Ruby Wong
              2130 Fulton St.
              San Francisco, CA 94117-1080

    USF will verify the completed form and return it to the company.
  • Your company then issues a matching gift contribution to USF.
