Many businesses and corporations provide matching gifts for employee donations to K-12 educational foundations like PIE. Company forms for matching gifts need to be sent to PIE with the donation. PIE completes the form and submits it on behalf of the employee. Matching gifts usually double and can even triple the value of an individual donation.
PIE is pleased to receive grants from both private and public foundations. PIE is happy to provide a list of giving opportunities to foundations considering a donation.
As a public charitable foundation, PIE may receive Gifts In Kind from individuals and businesses to benefit the schools in PIE's Member School Districts. Prior approval by the PIE office is required. PIE acknowledges all approved gifts with documented receipts for the donor.
