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. 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.

Donor Advised Funds

If you’ve already benefited from the immediate tax deductions offered by donor-advised funds, please know that USF is an IRS-qualified public charity and is thus eligible to receive contributions from your gift fund. Please follow the instructions provided by your fund regarding minimum contribution, the process for recommending grants, and other considerations.
