Matching Gifts

Hundreds of community-minded companies operating in the GLT listening area are happy to match their employees' or retirees' contributions to GLT. These matching corporate contributions go straight to work with your individual support: helping to pay for GLT's quality program service.

How do matching gifts work?

You can call or visit your employer's Human Resource office and ask for your employer's matching gift form. Fill it out and return it to GLT along with your contribution.

To ensure your gift is matched and the funds are designated to WGLT, please identify the recipient organization as Illinois State University Foundation/Friends of WGLT.

More and more employers have an online facility for matching gift requests. Your Human Resources office should be able to direct you to the correct website for your employer's matching gift process.

As soon as we receive your paper form or online application, we request your employer's matching gift.

Sustaining contributors: We suggest you wait until the end of each calendar year to apply for your employer's matching gift. This will allow you to apply once for the total amount of your giving for that calendar year. Many sustaining contributors use their year end tax receipt from the Illinois State Unversity Foundation as a reminder to apply for their employer's matching gift. Year end tax receipts are mailed every January.

Did you make a credit card contribution on line or over the phone?

You can still see that your generous contribution is matched. Submit your employer's online matching gift request or fill out your employer's paper matching gift form and mail to:

Friends of WGLT
8910 Illinois State University
Normal , IL 61790-8910
