BEARS CAMPAIGN 

Brinker PTA spends up to $20,000 annually on programs that directly impact each and every student at Brinker Elementary. Your generous donation allows us to continue to offer these high quality activities, programs and resources to enhance our students educational experience.  Our hope is to raise enough money during this campaign to fund and support all of our programs and wish list items. Since these programs impact each student, we have a goal of 100% participation!  We encourage you to find a level that fits your budget.  Remember that every donation is 100% tax deductible.

Corporate Matching Gifts

Another opportunity to make your donation go even further is to see if your employer has a matching gift program.  These programs allow an employee to make a donation to a charitable 501(c)(3) organization, such as Brinker PTA, and the employer will match that donation. This can dramatically increase the impact your gift makes for the Brinker PTA. These companies recognize the importance of private support of a nonprofit and offer this benefit to their employees (active or retired), directors or spouses. The entire gift (your contribution and your employer’s matching gift) is credited towards your donation level in our Bears Campaign (Note: a company’s matching gift is credit for Brinker PTA only and not for tax purposes). Check with your company’s Human Resources Department to see if your company offers this benefit.

 

How to make a matching gift:

Step One: Make your gift to the Brinker PTA Bears Campaign.

Step Two: Complete a matching gift form provided by your company.

Step Three: Submit the completed form to Brinker PTA’s VP of Fundraising
