Other giving opportunities:
Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even triple the amount of your gift! Check with your company and ask your donors to do the same. Ask PTC for matching gift buck slips, which you can include in your thank you notes to donors.
Ask your Human Resources Department if your company matches gifts. Send all completed matching gift forms to email@example.com and we will do the rest!
Remember, many companies review requests on a quarterly basis, and six–eight weeks is a normal payout schedule ONCE approved. Ask your HR rep for the payout schedule. Submit your request early to ensure it is processed before the fundraising deadline!
List any item for Pedal the Cause and donate between 10-100% of the proceeds.
