Giving to Kent

Employer matching gifts

Many employers now make matching gifts when their staff give to charity. Some will give £1 for every £1 (or $1 for $1) that an employee gives, others even multiply the gift by a factor of two. Almost all have an annual limit per employee, but these limits are quite high.

The best way to find out if your company operates one of these schemes is to ask your payroll or human resources department. If they do they will be able to give you a form to fill in confirming the gift you have made. Then you have to send that form to us so we can confirm we received the gift. That's all there is to it.

If you have any queries or would like to find out more about giving to the University of Kent, telephone the Development and Alumni Relations Team on 01227 824346 or email
