Corporate Matching

Your employee handbook or human resources department can tell you if your employer offers a matching charitable gifts benefit.  Make your donation and complete any matching gift paperwork from your employer or partner's employer.  We'll verify the gift with your employer, who then sends a matching contribution in your name.  Our PTSA Tax ID is number 94-3312467.

Donate to the PTSA Annual Fund today & contribute to the success of JLMS students!  
The PTSA is asking each JLMS family to make a donation to the Annual Fund to support the education of the children in our school.  Your donation is needed more than ever this year to help the PTSA provide resources that enrich the education of all of our James Lick students.  Donate online now or drop off a check payable to "James Lick Middle School PTSA" at the main office.  See more ways to support the James Lick MS PTSA.  
The Annual Fund is the largest single PTSA fundraiser of the year.  The goals are to raise $20,000 and to have 100% of JLMS families participate.  Last year, families contributed what they were able to, which ranged from $5 to $2,000.  Every donation helps us get closer to our goals and is appreciated!


For one-time donations, our suggested pledge is $360, which is equivalent to $2 per day of school.  You can also choose to make a recurring monthly donation.  For monthly donations, our suggested pledge is $40/month which is $1.66/day.  For less than the price of a cup of coffee your donation will provide much-needed resources for our children.  All donations are tax-deductible contribution (Tax ID #94-3312467).

Please check with your employer to see if your company matches charitable donations.  Also, please feel free to invite grandparents, aunts & uncles and family friends to contribute to our PTSA Annual Fund.  On behalf of our students, THANK YOU!
