Double Your Impact Through Matching Donations!

An easy way to increase the impact of your donation to Macfarlane Park IB School PTA is to have your employer match it.  Thousands of companies have Matching Gift Programs that will double, or even triple, individual tax-deductible contributions made by their employees.  Chances are if you work for a big company, they have a charitable donations matching program.   Some companies may even match donations made by spouses or retirees.

Participation is Simple!

First, contact your employer’s HR department to find out if they support a Matching Gift Program.  Second, ask them to send you a matching gift form from your company.While you’re at it, ask them to send multiple copies of the form so that next time you send in even a small donation, you can double it with a matching contribution from your employer.  If you have copies of the form handy, you are more likely to remember to send one in.   Finally, just fill out the form, sign it and send it to us with your contribution and we’ll do the rest!

Some of our Matching Gift Partners have included:

  • Bank of America
  • TECO
  • CarMax
  • Verizon
  • Wachovia

Kindly send in your completed and signed Matching Gift Contribution Form with your donation to PTA. If you need assistance filling out the appropriate forms or if you have any questions about employer matching gifts, please contact us at  ptapresidentmp@gmail.com.
