Matching Donations to Schools Made Easy

Many companies match employees’ charitable donations, as it builds tremendous goodwill. However, until now, matching donations in support of a K-12 school, PTA, school club or team, or classroom has just been too daunting.
Now, ClassWish.org makes it easy:
  • Your employees can visit ClassWish.org to support any K-12 school, PTA, teacher, club or team. They might support the school their children attend, the one they attended, one in their neighborhood, one your company adopted, or any other.
  • ClassWish provides a receipt for their tax-deductible contribution.*
  • Employees can submit that receipt to their employer.
  • ClassWish will handle the confirmation process you may require.
  • ClassWish will allocate your matching grant money among the same Wish List accounts your employees’ supported.

  • Whether you match employee donations or not, be sure to create your free company profile page to show your support of schools and America’s children. Doing so lets you:
  • Share information with employees and the community
  • Get the recognition you deserve
  • Encourage others to do their part to ensure that all children get a great education
  • * ClassWish is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Charitable gifts and donations made to ClassWish are tax deductible to donors who are United States taxpayers. Download our tax letter »

    • All information I provide to ClassWish is accurate, and I will promptly update the information to keep it accurate;
    • Any Requests I submit and any funding or items I receive are solely for use in my classroom and/or school, or in the case of FIRST Robotics team leaders are solely for use by my FIRST team, and any items I request through ClassWish will not be for my or anyone else’s personal use;
