Organizations match donations and volunteer hours. After a donation has been made (or the volunteer hours have been completed) the donor/volunteer obtains their employer’s matching gift form and submits it to The Office of Matching Gifts at:

If your employer uses an online system, you need to email a copy of your confirmation notice to matchgifts@jmu.edu so that it can be verified by JMU.

When JMU receives the matching donation we send an acknowledgement card to the donor.
