Employer Donation Matching
Did you know that employers often include donation matching to charitable 501(c)(3) organizations as part of their benefits package? Take a look below to learn more about how you can get the most for our school by utilizing your employer's donation matching benefit.
Does my Employer match donations?
The easiest way to find out is a quick google search. Most employers advertise their charitable donation matching publicly.
Talk to your Human Resources Department or benefits provider to learn how you can make the most of your donation through employer matching.
You may also take a look at our list of known employers below that have supported PRCS through donation matching.
What is the Process?
Each employer has a different approach. It is best to contact your employer directly to learn the process. In general most employers partner with a 3rd party granting agency and will follow one of two methods:
1) Employee Donates first:
You will make a donation first. In our case you may do so at our Donate Now page. You would then go to your employer's donation matching site to submit proof of donation and details regarding the charitable organization. Your employer will then send a matching donation to the D.R.E.A.M. fund.
2) Employer Donates on behalf of the Employee:
In this case you should go directly to your employer's donation matching site. You will then input the organization information, donation amount and your payment method. Your employer will then charge you the donation amount and will proceed to send a payment that includes your base donation + their match to the D.R.E.A.M. fund.
