Did you know the IPTAY Matching Gift Program is a great way to increase your donor level through funds provided by your employer? Your company match is included in your cumulative giving, which may increase your membership level and, in turn, increase your Priority Points. The Priority Points and your annual giving level are very important for seating and parking priority. With the February 15th deadline approaching, we wanted to take a moment and remind you of this opportunity. Below is information on how the program works and the steps necessary to enroll.
To claim matching gifts from your company: 1. Contact your company’s human resources department to determine if your company has a matching gift program. IMPORTANT: Every company has its own rules about matching funds, so be sure to familiarize yourself with the policies of your company’s matching program. Make sure that your company is willing to match a gift made to athletics. Use this link to view your companies matching gift policy. 2. Once you establish that your company will match your IPTAY donation, you will need to fill out the form that is provided by your company. Mail your matching form, along with your donation, to the IPTAY office (P.O. Box 1529, Clemson, SC 29633). Some companies require that requests be made online. In that case, simply print a copy of your online request and mail it in with your IPTAY donation. Once our office receives the donation and the matching gift form, we will verify the gift and mail the form back to your company. Depending on the payment schedule of your company, the matching check will be sent to our office and applied to your IPTAY account. Please note that if a company chooses to stop matching a donor’s gift, the donor is responsible for the entire annual contribution in order to maintain the same level of benefits. The IPTAY office is available to help you through the process of claiming matching funds and happy to answer any questions you may have. Jill Richard, IPTAY’s matching gifts coordinator, can be reached at 864-656-2976 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
