Company matching donations are an excellent way to maximize contributions to SchoolForce. In fact, depending on the company, employer-matching gifts can double or even triple the original donor’s gift. 

What is a company matching donation?

A company matching donation, or matching gift,is when a person makes a donation to a non-profit organization and their employer donates an additional amount, often equal or greater than the employee’s donation. A matching gift is a great way for a donor to increase their contribution to SchoolForce!

How do I know if my employer matches my donation?

You will find a partial list of recent companies with matching programs used by parents and donors like you 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.

Easy Steps for Company Matching


Step 1

Start the matching process by checking with your Human Resources department as each employer has different requirements. 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 SchoolForce. (Usually it’s as easy as a few clicks away or a call into your HR department).

Step 2
Mail the form along with your donation to us at the below address and we’ll complete it with SchoolForce’s required info and mail it into your employer! It’s that easy.

Can I process the match request online?

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.

How long before the company match is received by SchoolForce?

It often takes at least a month, and in some cases up to 6 months, for SchoolForce 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.

Will I get a verification that my employer’s match has been received?

Yes. SchoolForce will send you one email when we receive your employer donation matching request, and another when we receive the matching funds.
