What is it?

There are over 1000 companies nationally and over 40 companies in the area that offer Company Matching Gift programs for their employees and/or retirees. St. Charles Borromeo School is one of the private elementary schools that qualifies for company Matching Gifts. At St. Charles Borromeo School, all eligible contributions for matching gifts are budgeted for School Support; the funds received from various companies will be credited to this account.

Parishioners can make their monthly contributions by using the special St. Charles Borromeo School Support Matching Gift Program envelope. Checks must, however, be made payable to St. Charles Borromeo School and a new Company Matching Gift Program form must be submitted with each contribution received from parishioners participating in the Matching Gift program. In most cases the minimum amount companies will match is $25.

Parishioners either employed or retired from any of these companies should contact their Human Resources office to inquire about their matching gifts program. If you have any questions, contact Ken Kapeller at 636-946-3356.
