To check if a company matches, click here. When reaching out to your donors, always remind them about matching gifts. Some people may not be aware that their company matches, so a friendly reminder goes a long way. The match will be credited to your fundraising as soon as we confirm that the underlying donation has been made. Questions? Email jessica@pmc.org.

Paper matching forms should be sent in with the donation (if made by check) or receipt from online donation to the PMC office:
