Will the matched donation be allocated to the individual dancer or team I supported?

Yes! All matched donations are allocated to the same individual or team page as the original donation. If you would like the match to be applied to another page, please email with the details of your original gift and where you would like the match to be applied.

Does NUDM have a Letter of Determination?

Yes! Please email and we can provide this for you.

Will my full donation be matched?

It depends. If you donated through Classy, the fees cannot be matched by most companies. Please only include your donation less the fees when filling out the matching form. If you donated offline, your full donation will be matched!

Where is my official donation receipt?

Donations through Classy

The official receipt was emailed to the provided email immediately after the donation. The receipt was attached as a pdf, which should be submitted to your company if needed. If you cannot find the email, please email with details of your gift and we will send you a copy of your receipt.

Offline Donations

A receipt from Northwestern’s Alumni Relations and Development department should be mailed to your home address. If you have not received this, please email and we will send you a copy of your receipt.

Will my company match a donation made by my family member?

Most companies will not match donations made by anyone except for the employee. This includes pooled donations. Check your company-specific guidelines to ensure your donation has met the requirements to be matched.
