Many employers offer a corporate matching gift program. The principle is the same for all matching gift programs: when you make a financial contribution to a qualified organization, the corporation will match your gift with additional money. Some programs match 100% (e.g. you give $500, the corporation matches with another $500) while others match 50% or other amounts. Some programs have requirements on the organizations, but most require the donation to be tax-deductible gift to a 501(c)3 nonprofit group. Please check with your employer to find out their requirements to get your gift to Mountain View Sports Boosters matched!If your employer uses Benevity to manage their matching gift program, please note that there are several Mountain View High School groups in the database! Please designate “Mountain View High School Sports Boosters” so that athletics receives your matching gift.Gifts to the Mountain View High School Sports Boosters are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit, EIN 46-1848210
Some corporations have an additional, separate matching program where they will donate money to qualified nonprofit groups based on the number of hours the corporation’s employees have volunteered with that group. Again, please check with your employer on requirements and how to request matches on your hours. Typically, the match is based on the cumulative hours volunteered by all employees (e.g. Person A volunteers 2 hours, Person B volunteers 10 hours, Person C volunteers 8 hours—Boosters gets a matching gift based on 20 volunteer hours). You will need to correctly designate Mountain View High School Boosters as the recipient when you report your volunteer hours.
Some participating corporations include:
Intel: matches $10 per volunteer hour (once 20 hours are reached)
Google: matches every 5 volunteer hours with $50
Apple: matches $25 for every volunteer hour
