Double your Impact with Employer Matching Gifts

What is a Matching Gift?

A matching gift is an important employee benefit that supports employees in their personal philanthropy and fundraising efforts. This involves matching individual contributions to eligible nonprofits, including public schools.

Why investigate if your employer matches charitable gifts?

If your employer matches charitable gifts, the amount of your gift to Creative Arts Charter School might be doubled or even tripled!

In addition to recognizing the value of their employees’ donations to non-profits by matching contributions, may employers will now make a monetary gift to a non-profit as a “match” for volunteer hours completed by an employee. Creative Arts Charter School is a non-profit organization, and a copy of our 501(c)(3) IRS letter is available on request.

What to do?

Get a Matching Gift form from your employer, fill out your portion, and mail it in the reply envelope with your donation, or drop it off with your donation to the office.


If you’ve already sent your donation or made your donation online, drop the form off in the office or mail the Matching Gift form to:

Creative Arts Charter School
 1601 Turk Street, San Francisco, CA 94115
Non-profit Tax ID: 94-320-5197

Or fax it to (415) 749-3437

More and more employers offer online Matching Gift processing, so you may not even need a form

Just let them know you donated to us, and they will take care of the rest. Some companies even offer donation, via payroll deduction, so we receive your donation and their matching gift in one lump sum!
