Matching Gifts

Many community-minded companies will match contributions to WMRA and WEMC from employees, retirees, directors, and often their spouses. Matches are typically dollar-for-dollar, but can range as high as four-to-one.

WMRA and WEMC are non-profit public radio stations operated by James Madison University and may be qualified through either your company’s cultural or higher educational matching gifts program. Contact your Human Resources/Personnel department for a matching gift form and send it in with your contribution. We'll take care of the rest.

How do you know if your company will match your gift? We have listed many companies below, however, this list is NOT comprehensive. We would be glad to help you check on your company's policy.

Please call or write for more information:
