Matching Gifts—Making the Perfect Match

FAQs about Matching Gifts

I made a donation to Far Hills a few months ago. Can I still apply for a matching gift?

Yes, it’s not too late! Many companies allow employees to submit match requests for up to one year following the date of the donation. Check with your HR manager regarding specific donation periods and policies.

My employer didn’t come up in the search box. Now what?

It is still possible that your employer will match your donation if you don’t find your company in our search feature. The best way to find out is to check with your company’s HR manager and ask if your donation to a private primary/middle school can be matched.

Do matching gifts make a difference?

Absolutely! During the 2016–17 academic year, companies matched over $13,000 worth of gifts for Far Hills. We estimate that there is at least another $25,000 that has not been filed by Far Hills donors with their company’s matching gift programs.

What paperwork do I and/or my company need to complete in order to apply for a matching gift?

If your company has an online donation system administered through your Intranet or a matching gift portal, paperwork is automatically forwarded to Far Hills when you enter your donation amount. If matching gifts are handled directly by your HR department, you will need to obtain a matching gift form and submit this with your Far Hills donation. We will handle the rest of the submission request from our end. If you have any questions, contact Gretchen Hilton at 908-766-0766 x 1460.
