Matching Grants

What is a Matching Grant Program?

You may work for a corporation that offers a matching gift program of current employees, spouses, retirees and surviving spouses of retirees.

A matching grant program may make it possible for you to double or triple the value of your contribution by following your employer’s matching gift procedures.

How to Participate

Contact your Human Resources Department for eligibility information and to obtain a matching gift form. Enclose the completed form to us with your contribution. We will verify your contribution and return the form to your employer, who will send the match gift directly to the Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History. Some companies, like Exxon Mobil, will also make a contribution to the Museum for your volunteer hours with us.
