Did you know?

  • If your spouse works for a company that also matches gifts, you may be eligible for an additional corporate match.
  • Many companies will match gifts for retirees, as well as current full-time and part-time employees.

Matching gift companies only match the tax-deductible portion of your donation. You may wish to consider sending an additional gift to cover the cost of benefits to ensure you reach your desired contribution and benefits level.

Please call our Development Department at 847-266-5023 with any questions.
