Match Your Gift
Many companies have employer matching gift programs as a benefit to employees, whereby the donor submits documentation to the employer of a gift to Wornick, and the company matches the funds. Companies will double or even triple their employees’ donations. This is an easy way to increase the size of your own gift to Wornick; all matching support is credited to you. Your human resources office can advise you if your company has such a program.
Tribute and Memorial Gifts
Wornick gratefully recognizes gifts made in memory or in honor of friends, family or faculty members, or to acknowledge a birthday, bar or bat mitzvah, graduation or other significant life cycle event.
