Corporate Matching and Kenmore PTA: Frequently Asked Questions


How Much Of My Donation Will Be Matched?

In many cases, corporate matching will double the amount of money you’re able to donate, when your employer matches what you give, dollar for dollar.  In some cases the multiplying effect is even greater, such as if your employer match includes them making a donation for every hour you spend volunteering your time.  For example, Microsoft will donate $25 for every hour their employee spends volunteering at a qualifying charitable organization.


Does My Employer Match Donations?

We’ve compiled a list of the corporate matching policies for some of the major local employers represented in our region.  If your employer is not listed, please make a quick inquiry to your HR department to see if your company has a matching program.  If they do, please feel free to share with us what you find out, so we can add that information to our list to assist your coworkers.

What Does Kenmore Elementary’s PTA Do With The Donations?

The PTA’s primary goal is to enrich our children’s educational experience at school.  Besides the incredible value our parent volunteers add throughout the year, the other major way we meet that goal is by using the funds, generously entrusted to us by our donors, to grant funds to various educational enrichment programs as determined by the board and general membership, in partnership with the teachers and staff of our school.


How Can I Get A Signed Receipt For My Donation?
