Did you know that there are many companies that match parent’s contributions to the Roosevelt PTA!?  Some firms will match dollar-per-dollar, and others will match a portion of the contribution, up to a pre-determined maximum amount.  In addition, some companies facilitate their employee’s charitable giving through payroll deduction. Here’s how you and your employer can help donate to the Roosevelt PTA Enrichment Fund:

1)    Determine if your company offers matching

  • Determine if your company offers a corporate match program for charitable contributions:
