Matching Gifts Enhance Your Support
Employer gift matching is a simple and effective way to boost your support of the Naval Institute. A number of companies match or even double tax-deductible gifts made by staff, board members, and retirees as a way of adding the weight of their charitable dollars to the interests of their associates.
The human resources department can advise whether your company matches gifts, and if the Institute fits within the guidelines of their giving program. If so, most employers will provide a form or offer applications at their Web site. When you mail the completed form to us with your personal gift by check or credit card, the Naval Institute is able secure the matching funds and magnify the impact of your support.
In recent months, the Naval Institute Foundation has received gift matches from:
Bank of America
Mutual of America
Portland General Electric
