Corporate Matching

  • How Does Corporate Matching Work?

    STEP 1
    Find out if your employer matches donations to nonprofits like MPTO and/or volunteer hours. If your company isn't listed on this page, please:

    • Check with your HR department.
    • Search online for "[company name] corporate matching"
    • Email fundraising@montclaire.org for help. We would be happy to research your company's corporate matching guidelines.

    STEP 2
    Fill out your employer's corporate matching form. Some corporate intranet sites allow you to apply directly online; others provide forms that can be printed out and mailed. To complete your employer's corporate matching form, you will need the following information:

    Montclaire Parent Teacher Organization (MPTO) 
    P.O. Box 3266 
    Los Altos, CA 94024-0266

    Tax ID# 77-028-6675

    STEP 3
    Follow your employer's instructions to submit your forms.

    Please apply for your corporate matching soon, as most companies have submission deadlines, and requests can take a few months to be processed and for MPTO to receive the match.

    Tax-deductible donations you make at WATSA each year may also qualify for corporate matching using your WATSA Tax Letter Receipt, including things like underwriting the event, costs associated with hosting a party or donating an item or service, sponsoring a child in the Walk-A-Thon… basically anything included on the tax letter receipt you will receive after WATSA from MPTO. It does not include items or events you bid on and win. Please consult your tax advisor for advice for your specific situation.

    Some companies also reimburse non-profits such as MPTO for volunteer hours worked. Check with your HR department or your corporate intranet to see if your employer offers this benefit. If so, Montclaire and MPTO can benefit not only from your generous contribution of volunteer time inside or outside the classroom, but financially as well!
