Unlock the Power of Giving with Matching Gifts

At City Garden School, we believe in the transformative power of education and its ability to shape the future. We are dedicated to providing our students with an exceptional learning experience that nurtures their curiosity, creativity, and growth. We invite you to join us in this mission and amplify your impact through matching gifts from your employer.

What Are Matching Gifts?

Matching gifts are a fantastic way to maximize your contribution to City Garden School. Many companies encourage philanthropy by matching their employees' donations to nonprofit organizations. When you donate to our school, your employer may contribute an equal or even larger amount, effectively doubling – or even tripling – your generous support.

How Does It Work?

1. Donate: Make a donation to City Garden School. Your gift will directly support our educational programs, faculty, and students.

2. Check Eligibility: Find out if your employer participates in a matching gift program by using the form on this page.

3. Submit a Request: If your employer offers a matching gift program, we will email you instructions to submit your request.

4. Multiply Your Impact: Your contribution will be matched according to their guidelines once your employer processes the matching gift request. Your generosity will have twice the impact on our school community.
