YOUR EMPLOYER CAN HELP, TOO

Matching gifts

Many employers will match employee charitable contributions, which can double the impact of your gift. Contact your Human Resources Department for a matching gift form from your employer and send us a completed copy. We will do the rest.

Payroll deductions - UMass employees

UMass Medical School and UMass Memorial employees can make gifts through payroll deduction. Sign up is required; please contact us for a copy of the form.

Start one or more fundraising teams at work
