Employer Matching

Were you aware that our PTA is eligible for matching through many employer matching programs?

We are a qualified 501(c)(3) organization, so any contributions via payroll deduction, one time gift or any volunteer opportunities are eligible for matching funds from your employer. We currently have employees of Boeing, GE, Google and Microsoft submitting requests for matching funds.

Employees can not only donate money, they can also donate their time.  Check with your employer to determine if they will match dollars for volunteer activities.  For example, for every hour a Microsoft employee donates to the PTA, Microsoft will match $25.

Here are instructions and helpful links for Microsoft Employee Matching.

If any other parents can provide details and guidance for any other company matching programs, we'd love to create a separate page on this site to explain it.   Contact


Microsoft Employees

Sunrise Elementary PTA is eligible for matching through Microsoft Give!

  • For any monetary contribution you make to the Sunrise PTA, Microsoft will match it dollar for dollar (up to $15,000 per employee per calendar year).
  • All volunteer hours are now matched at $25/hour.  (Note: Volunteering that occurs during Microsoft company time, like Day of Caring, does not count for volunteer participation since it's not a personal gift of unpaid time.)
  • Use the Mobile App to record your donation on the spot:
  • If you're inclined, you can set up payroll deductions any time of the year now (as opposed to only in October like it used to be).
  • For more information and guidelines, visit http://give (requires corpnet access).
