Dragon Dash Event Day Volunteer Opportunities
Interested in supporting the Dragon Dash on Event Day? Volunteer opportunities will be solicited two weeks prior to the event.
Company Matching Funds
Does my company match my donations?
Please see your HR department for details on your company’s matching program. The Findley PTO website lists some of the known companies that have matching programs. There are some companies who require you to donate through them directly to receive the match (such as Nike, Cambia, Providence, and Kaiser). If you do not donate through their website, Findley will not receive the matching funds.
No. Company matching funds are not included in your child’s total donation. Company matching is valuable and Findley PTO highly encourages all donors to take advantage of this offer if their company has a matching program. However, because funds may reach our account long after the event, or not at all if the employee does not complete steps to ensure they are approved by their company, we do not include company matching in Dragon Dash prize/award levels.
If I have to contribute directly through my company website, how do my kids get credit for the donation?
Please email your student’s name, grade, and teacher along with a copy of your donation receipt from your Employer (PDF, image, etc) to email@example.com. We will log the donation for your child(ren) and they will get credit for your donation amount. (Your Employer’s matching funds will not be included in your child’s total.) If you are donating for multiple children, please indicate how you want your donation allocated, otherwise it will be split equally.
How do I inform Findley PTO of my Employer’s company matching amount?
Please email your Employer Name and amount along with a copy of your company matching receipt from your Employer (PDF, image, etc) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If my children have a combined PledgeStar account, how do donations get split?
The donations will be divided equally between your children under the same household. For example, if you donate $200 and you have two children, each child will receive credit for $100.
Can my children each have an individual PledgeStar account?
Yes, but you will need to create an account for each child with a separate/unique email address.
I have already donated once through PledgeStar and would like to donate additional money. Why won’t the website let me donate again? How can I make an additional donation?
PledgeStar does not allow you to donate more than once to reduce the number of duplicate payments made in error. You can send yourself a new PledgeStar request to a new email address and make a new donation.
Will my donation receive a tax receipt?
All donations $25 and above will receive a tax receipt. If you donate online via PledgeStar, your tax receipt is emailed to you in an auto-generated Thank You message from the child to which you donated.
I sent in my donation through my child’s Dragon Dash envelope. When will I receive a tax receipt?
Please use PledgeStar for all donations this year due to COVID restrictions.
