March Matchness 2022

Today’s the day — Success is just a match away!

Double your donation, double your impact! This spring, your donation goes twice as far as it’s matched dollar for dollar with these three opportunities for Highlands University and our students:

Match Number One

School of Education:

Our Highlands School of Education has an amazing opportunity to receive $150,000 in state funds with a two-to-one match to establish the Institute for Culturally and Linguistically Responsive Learning and Teaching. What that means is that for every dollar raised up to $75,000, the state of New Mexico will match it with two dollars. When this match is completed, the School of Education will have a $225,000 endowment.

Match Number Two


A group of generous donors have combined their pledges to offer a match of up to $20,000 to be used for athletics! Your donation of any amount will be matched dollar for dollar up to the maximum amount of $20,000. That’s a potential of $40,000 to provide scholarships for our student athletes!

Our student athletes are students first. Highlands strives to encourage the well-rounded development of our athletes by emphasizing scholarly pursuits and community service in addition to helping them develop competitive athletic skills, in an environment where diversity is respected.

Match Number Three

Vatos Rugby:

The Vatos Rugby team has the opportunity to raise up to $6,290 through a generous dollar-for-dollar match of $3,145.

The Vatos are three-time national champions in the Sevens Series of the National Small College Rugby Organization. Unlike other teams in their division, the Vatos team is a Highlands club sport and must raise their own funds for all expenses.

You and Highlands…the perfect match!
