Matching Gifts from Employers

Many companies encourage their employees to make charitable contributions by matching their philanthropic support. At the University, donors receive credit for their employers' matching gifts. The impact of corporate matching support can be enormous. Among the most generous providers of matching gifts to the University are IBM, ExxonMobil, Philip Morris Companies and General Electric. In a single year, Exxon's matches to gifts from its personnel provide over $130,000 to U.Va. and its schools and programs. Hundreds of other companies have similar matching-gift programs. To find out if you work for one of them, use this online search or consult your human resources office, who can provide you with a matching gift form.


Making Gifts of Endowment & Capital Projects

Transformative gifts of endowment and capital projects in the Campaign for SEAS will help to sustain the School and the University at new levels of distinction, extend the reach of scholarship, support our commitment to the discovery and dissemination of knowledge in a way that improves and enriches the lives of people around the world. Our top priorities include capital projects, such as a new University center for Information Technology Engineering, and academic enrichment through professorships for the top faculty and merit based scholarships for deserving students.

Gifts of endowment demonstrate your long-term commitment to support Engineering at UVa. An endowment is a fund that is maintained in perpetuity — only a portion of the market value of the endowment is used for the purpose specified by a donor. Endowments reflect your interests and serve as a testament to your generosity.

Outright gifts may be used to help finance the construction of facilities, the renovation and expansion of existing buildings and facilities as well as the restoration of historic structures, such as Thornton Hall. Most often these significant gifts allow for naming and other recognition opportunities.

For more information, visit our Goals and Priorities. For personal attention and advice, please call the University of Virginia Engineering Foundation at (434) 924-3045 to speak with a development officer.


Planned Giving

•  Retirement Plans
