Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. If your company is eligible, please request a matching gift form from your employer and send it, completed and signed, with your gift to the Advancement Office. We will do the rest. The impact of your gift to Madison Academy may be doubled or possibly tripled. Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
