Your employer just might match your charitable contribution when you give to a non-profit like the CRS PTA! This can double or even triple your donation. Contact your Human Resources or Benefits Department and ask about “Matching Funds” for “501(c)(3)” charitable organizations like the CRS PTA. If you volunteer with us, your employer may also provide us with a grant as a way to recognize your ongoing support.
Thanks for checking to see if your company will match your donation and helping to support our Bobcats! Companies that have previously contributed matching funds include Bank of America, Fidelity, Northrup Grumman, Salesforce, and VMware.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are corporate matching and employee matching gift programs? Many companies match their employees' contributions to eligible nonprofit organizations (US-based 501(c)(3)) through corporate giving programs. This could instantly double the money you donate to the organization.
What are volunteer grant programs? Volunteer grant programs are corporate giving programs in which companies provide monetary donations to organizations where employees volunteer regularly.
How do I request a matching gift or volunteer grant? Requesting a matching gift or volunteer grant is normally a less than five-minute process which must be initiated by the donor /volunteer. You can do this through an electronic submission process or by filling out and submitting a paper match form provided by your employer. Consult your HR or Benefits Department for your company’s program details and instructions.
Does corporate matching benefit my employer? Definitely. Corporations are happy to do corporate matching for two reasons. It gets them tax deductions and it also gives them an opportunity to be good corporate citizens.
When should I apply for corporate matching? As soon as you make your donation. Some companies distribute corporate matching funds right away, while others process them once a quarter. Some companies have strict time constraints within which employees are required to submit corporate match applications. If your company offers corporate matching, please apply for it right away.
Can I match my class fund contribution? No, only donations to the Bobcat Fund are eligible for donation matching.
