Corporate Matching Donations at Booksin

Booksin Elementary School Community Organization (BESCA) is a California 501(c)3 Non­Profit Organization: Tax ID #23­7399164.

Many companies match charitable donations made by their employees. Corporate Match has become a great way to maximize Walkathon contributions, and is especially important this year. In order to get your personal contribution matched by your company, please follow these steps:

 

Online Process

  1. Make your personal Walkathon donation using your child's personal Fundraising Page. This link is located on the front of your Registration Card.

  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.

  3. Note: The portion of the matching donation that your company provides will not be applied to Top Club and other awards.

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

  5. Go to https://booksin.squarespace.com/corporate-matching and fill in the details of the matched contribution so that we can track your donation.

  6. Send a copy of your receipt or confirmation from your company's giving portal to booksinmatch@gmail.com.
