Corporate Matching: Please submit ASAP


A huge 'Thank you'... 

...to all our Dolphin Dash benefactors.

[Didn't donate?  You still can, right now.]


If you haven't by now, please take action today: submit a corporate matching funds request to your employer, or your spouse's employer.

When choosing the organization to receive the funds, please be sure to select: "Samantha Smith Elementary PTSA 2.8.57"


Already submitted?  Thank you!  Your time was well spent.  Matching funds make a BIG difference.


What Difference Can Matching Make?

Matching funds account for approximately 40% of the PTSA budget.  Generous donations from parents like you, allow us to fund or sponsor many of the programs that help make Smith one of the most sought after elementary schools in the region.  The simple act of submitting your qualified match requests allow us to do roughly 60% MORE than we could without them.  What a difference a little paperwork can make.


So please, help us continue supporting those programs by taking a little time right now to make sure your qualifying donation is processed for matching by your employer.


For more information on Corporate Matching of employee donations, please refer to our FAQ page on the topic.


Thank you,

~The Smith PTSA Board
