Corporate Matching Gift Programs

 

What is a matching gift?
Nearly 1,000 U.S. companies have matching-gifts programs. These companies recognize the importance of private support for higher education through charitable support and will match the gifts their employees make to PCOM. Some companies match gifts made by retirees, officers of the board, spouses and/or domestic partners.

 

Why should I match my gift?
It is an easy way to increase your support to Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.
You can more than double your gift, depending on your company’s match ratio, earning greater credit and recognition for each matching gift. When we publish our annual Report of Donors, you will be listed as having given the total amount of your gift and the matching amount provided by your company. You can also ensure that your company’s name will be included among the corporate supporters of PCOM.
(Please note that the company’s matching gift credit is for PCOM recognition only and not for tax purposes. Gifts must meet all company guidelines and rules vary from company to company.)

 

How can I match gifts?
To find out if your employer has a matching gift policy, please click here. Enter your company’s name and their guidelines and procedures will be stated for authorizing the match. In most cases, matching gift forms may be obtained through the company’s human resources department.

Planned Giving

Planned giving or charitable gift planning refers to the process of making a charitable gift of estate assets to one or more nonprofit organizations, a gift that requires consideration and planning in light of the donor’s overall estate plan.

Such gifts usually include legal documents and often require the assistance of a qualified professional advisor to complete.  Because of the size and the potential impact of such gifts, a donor should consult with his or her professional advisors before completing the process.  PCOM will provide several appropriate advisors to interested alumni.

Gift Annuities

Charitable gift annuities are a simple way to give back to PCOM while receiving a life-time annuity. When you make a charitable gift annuity to PCOM ($10,000 minimum), you are entitled to an immediate tax deduction for a portion of your gift.  PCOM will make payments to you and/or your beneficiary(ies) for as long as you choose. At the appropriate time, PCOM will use the gift annuity to support the academic programs of the College. For more information on the annuity program or for a personal, no-obligation analysis of the income and tax benefits based on the birth date(s) of your incomes beneficiary(ies), contact the Office of Alumni Relations & Development at 800-739-3939 or visit our planned giving site.
