School-Force Corporate Matching Gifts program is an excellent way to maximize contributions. In fact, Corporate Matching gifts can, depending on the company, double or even triple the original donor’s gift. In the 2009-2010 fundraising year, matching gifts totaled $163,000!!

The best and most up-to-date answer is to check with your company’s Human Resources Department to confirm whether or not your employer matches gifts. The guidelines, policies and procedures vary by employer. Each employer has very clear guidelines as to what organizations it supports, and what the matching limits are per employee per year.
The instructions are often described on the match-request form provided by your employer. This often consists of 2 parts, one which must be completed by the employee and the other which must be completed by the receiving organization, in this case School-Force. In the section for the employee, the form will request donor information, the amount of the gift and the date of the gift. The employee’s signature is often required.
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.
This varies by employer, but many have the ability for you to request the match online.
It often takes at least a month, and in some cases up to 6 months for a match to be fully processed and for School-Force to receive the funds. For this reason, we highly recommend you to start the process as soon as you have made the original donation.
Yes, it is School-Force’s policy to send an acknowledgement that the company matching funds have been received.
