Matching Gifts

Medina Elementary PTA would like to thank you for extending your generous donation by requesting matching gifts from your employer.  Many corporations require that the organization they are matching funds for have 501(3)(c) non-profit status, which Medina PTA has!  Most employers with matching gift programs make it easy for their employees to match donations.   Usually it’s a matter of filling out a form or submitting a simple request online. Check with your HR department or scroll down to see how match requests can be made with many local companies.  Please note that each company is different and individual employer policies can change from time to time.   So, check with your company’s HR department to find out the most up-to-date details.

When you submit your request, please provide the following information to help us allocate funds:

1. Event name (e.g. Walkathon/Dance-A-Thon, Auction, Cash donation for wine purchase, Program Specific such as Chess, Theater, Music, Movie Night etc.)

2. Student name (first and last name)

3. Match amount (e.g. paid amount minus the fair market value) 

Gifts like yours help our PTA provide valuable programs and experiences that enrich he education of all students at the school.  It will double your individual donation to the Medina PTA and allow us to provide even more support to the students at Medina Elementary. Corporate matching donations are not counted toward individual or family donations to school fundraisers, but do positively benefit the PTA and school.  If you have any questions, please contact finance@medinapta.org! Thank you!

Companies below are local employers we hear frequently, but this list can get longer with your gift!
