Employer Matching Grants
Did you know that many companies offer a free benefit to employees in which they match employee donations to qualifying non-profits, including Beacon School Parent Association? Sometimes they’ll double or even triple your donation. That means your $500 donation could become $1500. (Some companies also match gifts made by spouses and retirees.)
We’ve recently received matching donations from Barclays, Dell, Deutsche Bank, Disney, FannieMae, Ford Foundation, Goldman Sachs, Lexis-Nexis, Pfizer, Thomson Reuters, and many others. And it’s not only the Fortune 500 companies that participate. So please talk to your company’s HR department to see if this free benefit is available to you.
The process is simple. Each company has its own requirements, but typically they’ll have you fill out a short form about your donation and then verify that information with the PA. If they ask you to send the form to us directly, then just mail it to the Beacon School PA address below or email it to email@example.com.
Here’s what your company will need to know: Beacon School Parent Association is a registered 501(c) (3) tax-exempt organization located at 522 West 44th Street, New York, NY 10036. The federal id tax number is 13-3749712.
