Matching Funds

What is Matching Funds?  

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees. Last year, DESEF received more than $18,000 through the Matching Funds program. 

How can you help?  

Contact your human resources department to find out if your company has a Matching Funds program. The San Ramon Valley Education Foundation (SRVEF) also has a searchable database of companies that match charitable contributions. Visit http://www.srvef.org/how-to-get-involved/matching-gifts to look for your company, but keep in mind that some employers may still match donations even if they are not listed in this database. Please use our Tax ID # 20-3046825.
