Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. In fact, more companies match gifts to higher education than any other type of charitable giving. Matching gifts are directed to the same designation as your original gift, unless your employer dictates otherwise. Sometimes, companies will double or even triple the match and may also match retirees/spouse contributions.
