Double your donations to Hill Elementary PTA without it costing you any extra money.

Many Austin companies offer Matching Gifts where your contribution (PTA Memberships, Booster, Dillo Donations) to Hill Elementary PTA is matched, dollar for dollar, by your corporation or it’s charitable foundation.   These programs are a great way for companies or foundations to help support their employees’ charities, while non-profit organizations like ours get the benefit of a doubled donation.

The Matching Process:
Every company or foundation handles their matching donations differently.  Below is a list of the possible ways matching programs can work:
• Employees are required to fill out a company form (paper or online) and offer proof of the donation. 
• The program requires a grant application and more specific documentation from the charity. 
• Employers may collect your contribution through periodic payroll deductions and the total gift (including the corporate match) is sent directly to Hill Elementary PTA.

No matter what your company’s process is, we are here to help.  So please contact your company or foundation and determine their specific steps for matching.
Email Jayne Rosso-corporate matching@hillelementary.com  or at 512 988 6947 if you need Hill Elementary PTA to complete a form, send a letter or assist with grant applications.

Important Information you may need:
Our legal name is Texas PTA Congress # 0514 dba Hill Elementary PTA
Our address is Hill Elementary PTA 8601 Tallwood Drive Austin TX 78759
