Outright Gifts of Cash

Outright gifts of cash are the easiest way to participate in the campaign. Donors may give cash as an outright gift, or they can make a pledge and satisfy the commitment over a period of up to five years.


Matching Gifts

Many companies match the philanthropic gifts given by their employees. 

Find out whether your employer (or your spouse's employer) is a matching gift corporation.
