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.

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 make a donation.  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!

Stay tuned for details about
La Gran Noche/Big Night 2019!


Big Night 2018 presented the opportunity to indulge in a delicious taco bar from Tacolicious, fancy appetizers, delectable cupcakes from Mission Minis, specialty margaritas, sangria, unlimited wine, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages, as well as dancing to live music by Soul Society (featuring JLMS's very own Brendan Reilly), the teacher-bartending challenge, fun games, and lot more.  Not only did attendees have a great time, but proceeds also supported our James Lick Middle School students (who really appreciated the love!).
