Annual Campaign Sponsorships
Our annual fundraising campaign reaches out to our community to raise resources that benefit Pflugerville ISD teachers and students. Contact us for more information on the available Sponsorship levels. We also participate in Amplify Austin and Giving Tuesday.
The Pflugerville ISD staff has the opportunity every year to demonstrate their commitment to education through donating to the Pflugerville Education Foundation Employee Giving Campaign. Click here for more information.
This fund was established to ensure that the Foundation would become self-perpetuating and, through prudent investment, could provide a source of funds for more significant grants or activities, as approved by the Foundation. Contributions may be designated specifically for the PEF Endowment Fund.
Wills, trusts, life insurance and other options recommended by an estate planner may be considered as donation options.
Many companies and corporations offer an Employee Matching Gifts Program as a benefit to their employees who wish to donate to a charitable organization. Employee Matching Gifts (or matching funds) are grants an employer makes to match its employees’ charitable contributions.
Check with your employer’s Human Resources Department to see if they participate in a Matching Gifts Program as part of their corporate philanthropy. Contributions may be doubled or even tripled when matched by an employer. Here are a few that have participated in the past:
- National Instruments
The process varies among companies, but generally, there are a few steps.
- Make a donation to the Pflugerville Education Foundation.
- Obtain an Employee Matching Gifts Program form from your employer’s HR department. Fill out the section indicated, and mail it to Pflugerville Education Foundation, PO Box 773, Pflugerville, TX 78691. If your company requires online donations, please contact the Foundation for assistance at email@example.com.
- Once the form is received we take it from there. Donations will be verified and we will contact your employer, who will then disburse the matching funds to us.
