Make Your Donation Go Further

What is corporate matching?
Many local companies match contributions to nonprofit organizations (US based501(c)(3)). This can instantly double the money you donate to De PortolaFoundation. Please see our alphabetical list of companies who match donationsbelow.

Can my employer match my donation?
Yes! In fact, we highly encourage you to review our list of companies, andcheck with your employer to see if the company will match your pledge.Many companies will double – if not triple – your donation. If you do not seeyour company’s name on our list, please ask your Human Resources department.Every company handles its corporate matching differently so please ask your HRdepartment for details.

Does corporate matching benefit my employer?
Definitely, corporations are happy to match your donation as they, too, willget a tax deduction for their donation.

Will corporate matching impact me negatively?
Absolutely not.  Companies keep corporate matching data private. No onehas access to this data. In most cases, companies outsource the entire process.

When should I apply for corporate matching?
Right now! Some companies distribute corporate matching funds right away,while others process them once a quarter. Some companies require you tosubmit corporate match applications certain times of the year. If your companyoffers corporate matching, please apply for it right away.
