Double your impact with your company’s matching gift!

Many employers will match your charitable donation, thereby doubling or tripling your giving to The Cooper Union.

Generally, to take advantage of your employer’s gift matching program you should:

  • Check with your Human Resources Office to see if your employer offers this benefit.
  • If they do, complete the company matching gift form they will provide and return it to us if possible.
  • Alert The Cooper Union that you are trying to secure a matching gift.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
