Double or Triple Your Tax Credit Impact

Would you like your tax credit donation to have even more impact? Many businesses sponsor matching gift-giving programs. These programs will match dollar-for-dollar charitable contributions made by employees to APSTO.

By simply completing a matching gift form, you may be able to double or triple your tax credit impact depending on the company guidelines your employer has set for this program.

Make Your Donation to APSTO

To receive a state tax credit for your donation, you must first make your personal donation directly to APSTO.

Your donation will not qualify for the state tax credit if your donation is made to APSTO:

A Through your employer unless in conjunction with APSTO's Payroll Withholding Program or;

B Through your employer’s third-party gift giving provider (such as Benevity)

While we can accept and receipt this kind of donation, it will only qualify as a Charitable Giving contribution, not a state tax credit.

See If Your Employer Will Match Your Donation!

After making your donation to APSTO, contact your employer to find out if your donation is eligible under a company matching gifts program. Once your employer confirms they will match your donation, contact your HR department to assist you with company policy and procedure.

Or

Save time, and use our convenient online "Matching Gifts Company Directory". Instantly search the directory to see if your employer will match your donation and how much they will match. Our portal provides easy access to your employers program information, matching gifts form, guidelines, and instructions, so you can submit your request through your employers giving platform online.

If your employer does not appear in our directory, please check with them as it does not necessarily mean they don’t participate in a matching gifts program.

What to Expect:

While each company follows its own procedure when it comes to matching gift-giving, below is a general guideline of what to expect.

  • Complete your employers matching gift request form.
  • Submit your request per employer instruction and guidelines for approval.
  • Once approved, your employer will either contact APSTO to confirm you made the personal donation they can match or ask you to provide the receipt given by APSTO when you made your donation.
  • Upon confirmation, the matching gift can be sent to APSTO.

Most companies allow you to recommend a child or a school for your donation. We will honor that recommendation. Some employers will even match contributions made by retirees and spouses.
