Many companies offer corporate matching gift programs where they match charitable gift donations made by their employees. When you make a donation to the Ocee Elementary PTA, your employer may match your donation. This means you could be responsible for doubling, and in some cases tripling, the amount received by the PTA.

Ocee Elementary PTA is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit agency. EIN# 58-2540291.

How It Works

1. Join the PTA or make a donation to the PTA.
2. Get a form from your employer. The form may be online or a hardcopy. The link to the form may be available through this link:
3. Complete the first part of the form. You may need the EIN# 58-2540291. The amount of the gift is the Tax Deductible Amount, listed on the membership form.
4. Send it to school with your child in an envelope marked “PTA Matching Gifts”, or e-mail it to Sara at
4. Send the form to us:
• Send it to school with your child in an envelope marked “PTA Matching Gifts”
• e-mail it to Sara at
• To fax it, first send an e-mail to Sara, and then fax to 208-246-7722
5. We will complete the second part of the form and return it to the company. They will mail a check to the school.
6. We will confirm with an e-mail when we process the form.
7. When employers notify us of the match recipient, we will confirm by e-mail. In some cases, this information is not available to us.

Time Limits

The time limit to submit the form is based on each company’s guidelines. It is typically one year from the date of the donation.
