Multiply Your Impact!
Did you know that many business organizations offer a matching gift program as part of their employee benefits package? Your employer can double and even triple your donation to the Education Foundation of Palm Beach County in support of our students and their education. If you volunteer with us, your employer may also provide us with a grant as a way to recognize your ongoing support.
Use the information below to send Matching Funds to the Education Foundation of Palm Beach County. This is a time-sensitive process so please don’t delay!
Important information you may need to submit the match:
Employee matching gift programs are corporate giving programs in which the company matches donations made by employees to eligible nonprofit organizations. It’s an easy way to double or even triple your contribution to the Education Foundation of Palm Beach County!
Volunteer grant programs are corporate giving programs in which companies provide monetary donations to organizations where employees volunteer regularly. If you volunteer with us, it’s an easy way to provide the Education Foundation, and our schools with additional financial support.
Requesting a matching gift or volunteer grant is normally a five-minute process which must be initiated by the donor/volunteer. You can do this by filling out and submitting a paper match form provided by your employer or through an electronic submission.
The Education Foundation is responsible for providing tax receipts to donors who make a donation directly to our organization via check. If you donate online, you should receive an email soon after donating. Tax receipts for donations made through your employer’s employee giving platform must be provided by that organization (i.e. YourCause, Benevity, etc).
The short answer is no as the corporate match is a donation made by your employer, not you.
For questions regarding your company’s programs, please contact your employer’s HR or community giving department. Much of the necessary information will also likely be available on your company intranet.
