Company matching donations are an excellent way to maximize contributions to School-Force. In fact, depending on the company, employer-matching gifts can double or even triple the original donor’s gift. In the 2009-2010 fundraising year, matching gifts totaled $163,000!!
You will find a partial list of companies with matching programs below. However, it is always best to check with your Human Resources department for specific information on whether they have a matching program and how to request a matching donation.
Each employer has different requirements and the instructions are often described on their match request form. Please check with your Human Resources department. The match request form often consists of 2 parts, one which must be completed by the employee and the other which must be completed by School-Force.
School-Force’s EIN is 91-2159650.
If you have completed the employee section of the match request form you may send it to: School-Force, P. O. Box 5196, Belmont CA 94002.
Employer donation matching programs vary by employer, but many companies do allow you to request a matching donation online. Please contact your Human Resources department for more information.
It often takes at least a month, and in some cases up to 6 months, for School-Force to receive the funds from company matching programs. For this reason, we highly recommend you to start the process as soon as you have made the original donation.
Yes. School-Force will send you one email when we receive your employer donation matching request, and another when we receive the matching funds.
