Corporate Matching Gifts
A gift to Pennfield can have double to triple the impact if the donor works for a matching gift company. The donor should obtain a matching gift form from the Matching Gifts Coordinator, fill it out and send it along with their gift to the Pennfield School. We will verify the receipt of the gift and send the form to the company.
