Company Matching Program
Many companies match charitable donations, and therefore your donation to the IIT Bombay Heritage Foundation may be eligible for a matching grant, which could potentially double or even triple your donation. Please take a few moments to get a Matching Gift Form from your personnel office and follow the directions to initiate a match.
Does Your Company Match Gifts?
Many companies have programs through which they will "match" the charitable contributions made by their employees. Through corporate gift matching, your employer can multiply your gift to IIT Bombay, making it go further.
Please check with your company's Human Resources or Personnel Department to see if they offer gift matching. Even if they do not, you may want to ask your company to start one. If your employer does offer this program, your Human Resources or Personnel Department will usually explain the process for obtaining a company match for your gift. The IIT Bombay Heritage Foundation (IITBHF) office will verify receipt of your gift and provide you with all the necessary assistance to obtain the matching funds.
Conditions and criteria for gift matching vary by employer. Some companies offer a payroll deduction plan. For more information or if you are not sure if IITBHF qualifies for your company's gift matching program, or to obtain a copy of the latest financial report and registration filed by IITBHF, send an email to treasurer [at] iitbombay.org and/or call +1-408-252-1664.
