Making a Gift

Does your employer match gifts?

More than 1,000 corporations, foundations and other organizations will match their employees’ charitable contributions either dollar-for-dollar, or at a ratio of 2-to-1, 3-to-1, or even 4-to-1.

In order to process a matching gift, you must obtain the form from your employer and submit it for processing to Smith College, Advancement Services, 33 Elm Street, Northampton, MA 01063.

If you notify Smith that there is a matching component to your gift, the college can follow up once you have initiated the process.
