Many companies offer a corporate match for gifts their employees make to a nonprofit organization such as Providence Academy. Companies may also offer this matching opportunity to retirees and/or spouses. In addition, some companies provide a more robust matching gift for employees who are company executives, have worked at the same company for an extended period of time, or who serve on the board of a charitable organization.
By filing some simple paperwork with your company’s employee benefits department, your Annual Fund gift to Providence Academy may be doubled – or even tripled – with no additional cost to you. Gifts that are matched by employers do not increase your charitable deduction for tax purposes, but they do count toward your total annual giving and will be recognized as such in the Academy’s Annual Report.
*Under the above scenario, the donor’s gift goes twice as far to serve PA and results in the donor joining our Lion Rampant Society (recognizing Annual Fund gifts of $2500 and higher) as a member of the Order of Knowledge.
If your company is eligible, contact your employee benefits department as well as Providence Academy’s Development Office to arrange the matching gift. Providence Academy’s Tax ID/Employer Identification Number is 41-1883866. If your company does not appear in the search results, contact your Human Resources department and ask if your employer offers a charitable matching gift program.
