(4/20)  Matching Funds Companies
Is your employer on the Matching Funds list?  Many companies will match their employee's charitable contributions, and the process is usually as simple as filling out a form.  As we proceed with the Gym Floor/Bleacher project, perhaps you should check to see if you could potentially double your contribution by asking your employer to match your donation.  A list of Matching Funds Companies is always available on this website by clicking on About Us, Documents and Forms.
