Make your gift to PBS SoCaL go twice as far! Many companies across Southern California will match their employees donations dollar-for-dollar. Participating in your company's matching gift program can be as easy as 1, 2, 3.

Step 1 - Speak to your HR department today about their matching gift program and eligibility requirements. Many companies match the gifts of retirees, spouses, surviving spouses, and outside directors. Be sure to find out if your employer uses paper forms for their Matching Gift Program or if they require your donation information to be submitted to an online portal.

Step 2 - If your employer uses paper forms in the matching gift process, you'll start by obtaining a form and filling out the employee portion of the form. The form may ask for such information as your name, address, donation amount, and the date of your donation. Then send the matching gift form with employee section completed to:

PBS SoCaL
Attn. Susan Muramoto
PO Box 25113
Santa Ana, CA 92799-5113

Feel free to keep a copy for your records, but please be sure to send the originals to PBS SoCaL. The rest of the matching gift process will be taken care of by a PBS SoCaL representative.

If your employer has gone paperless and no longer uses forms in their Matching Gift Program, you may need to start by submitting information about your donation to an online company portal.

Then, after you have submitted all required donation information to the company portal, you're set! A PBS SoCaL representative will receive a notification from your employer and will take care of the matching gift process from there.

In the event that more information is needed, you will be contacted by your employer or by a PBS SoCaL representative.

Step 3 - You're done! Thank you for doubling your impact and supporting PBS SoCaL through your employers matching gift program.
