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 Ways & Means.



Thank you for your continued support of the Brinker PTA!  If you have any questions about the Bears campaign, please email our VP of Ways and Means at
