Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is corporate matching ?
Many companies match their employees' contributions to nonprofit organizations (US based 501(c)(3)). This could instantly double the money you donate to the organization.
2. Does corporate matching benefit my employer ?
Definitely. Corporations are happy to do corporate matching for 2 reasons. It gets them tax deductions. It also gives them an opportunity to be good corporate citizens.
3. Will corporate matching impact me negatively in any way ?
Absolutely not. Companies keep corporate matching data totally private. No one has access to this data. In most cases, companies outsource the entire process.
4. 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.
5. Does my employer have a corporate matching program ?
Check the list at the end of this document. If your employer is not listed there, call up the benefits/HR department of your employer, or look up the company intranet for details.
6. Is "Courreges Elementary PTA" the same as "Courreges Elementary School"?
No, they are separate registered entities even though they work hand in hand. When you are submitting a request, please make sure you specify the one that you intend to receive your donation.
