Corporate Matching

Many companies have programs through which they will "match" the charitable contributions made by their employees. Through corporate gift matching, your employer can multiply your gift to Bertha Taylor, making your donation go even further.

How do you know?

Check with your company's Human Resources office to see if they offer gift matching. (If they don't, you may want to ask your company to start one.) If your employer does offer this program, your Human Resources department should provide you with a matching gift form to send to Bertha Taylor along with your donation. Complete this form and mail it with your donation to:

Bertha Taylor Elementary
Attention: PTA
410 Sautner Drive
San Jose, CA 95123

Our PTA will verify receipt of your gift and return the form to your company for matching funds.

Conditions and criteria for gift matching vary by employer. Some companies offer a payroll deduction plan. For more information or if you are not sure if the school qualifies for your company's gift matching program, email us and we'll be glad to send information about our mission and programs.

The Bertha Taylor PTA is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.
