Qualifying Gifts
Gifts That Qualify For Matching
  • Gifts must be by personal check or securities with a quoted market value. For gifts in securities, the Foundation will determine the amount of it's grant based on the last sale or bid price on or before the date of the contribution, when possible.
  • A bequest on a "one-time-only" basis if it's paid within two years of death and if it satisfies all provisions of this program
  • Attendance at an institution is not a requirement for the gift to be eligible for matching
  • Matching of gifts by another foundation or company will NOT disqualify a gift under this program
