Planned gifts

Planned giving encompasses a variety of philanthropic strategies that help you invest in our future while also advancing your own financial and personal objectives. Visit the Planned Giving page to learn more about life income gifts and bequests, including pooled income funds, gift annuities, and charitable remainder trusts.

Matching gifts

A matching gift is when an individual gives to a nonprofit organization and their employer donates an equal or greater amount to the same organization. A matching gift is a great way for a donor to increase his or her contribution to Harvard Extension School. Companies have various methods by which they can submit their matching gift requests to Harvard.  These include paper forms, online forms (which the donor can print from the internet) and phone verification system.

Please use the Employer Matching Gift Search to find out if your company qualifies.
