Corporate Gift Matching
Leverage Your Donation through Matching Gifts
Do you work for a company that will generously match cash donations made by an employee to a school or school district? If you work for or have retired from a company that offers gift matching, you may be able to DOUBLE or even TRIPLE your cash gift to a school in the Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District (PYLUSD).
Company matching gift programs give you the opportunity to help direct your company's charitable donations toward our schools. Here's how it normally works:
Check with your company's human resources or payroll department to see whether it offers a matching gift program. You can also click here to see if your company offers such a program.
Obtain a matching gift form from your company’s human resources or payroll office.
Follow your company's procedure on submitting your funds, filling out the appropriate forms to ensure that the match is donated.
Note: while PYLUSD is not a 501(c)(3), the district is a tax-exempt government agency. As such, charitable contributions to schools are treated, for tax purposes, the same as donations to 501(c)(3) organizations. If you need to provide your employer with an official letter that details this, a downloadable PDF is available below. For more information, call 714-985-8430.
Contact your school's principal to let him or her know the amount of your contribution, so he or she knows ahead of time to look for it.
Already made a donation? Not a problem. Most companies will match your gifts for up to 12 months after you've made your donation.
