Tell Us About Your Donations

Each time you make a donation to BESCA, please let us know about your donation by filling out the corporate matching details form. Whenever possible, please make your donation directly to BESCA, then request the corporate match through your employer’s giving portal. This form can be used for monetary donations and volunteer hours. Please see additional information below for Walkathon Pledge Matching.

Online Process For Walkathon Pledge Matching

  1. Make your personal Walkathon pledge donation using your child's personal Fundraising Page. This link is located on your child’s Account Sheet (in the pledge packet).

  2. Log on to your company's giving portal (e.g., Benevity, Americares, etc.) and find the option that allows you to match a donation that you have already made (usually requiring you to upload a receipt). Please do not donate directly through your portal as it prevents us from associating your donation to your student. Note: The portion of the matching donation that your company provides will not be applied to Top Club and other awards.

  3. Complete the form to have your donation matched, choosing BESCA (Booksin Elementary School Community Association) as the organization to receive the matching funds.

  4. Fill out the Corporate Match donation form with the details of the matched contribution so that we can track your donation.

  5. Upload the receipt or confirmation from your company’s giving portal to the corporate matching form, or send a copy to corporatematch@mybesca.com.
