Double your Donation


Many companies will match your donation, doubling or even tripling your gift to support the Tucker PTA. Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

As a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Tucker PTA is eligible for many employers' Matching Gifts programs. And, if you have given already this year, the good news is that you may still be eligible. Simply contact your Human Resources Department to see whether a gift can be matched. If so, obtain a matching gift form from your Human Resources Department and return it to Tucker PTA, along with your contribution or a copy of your contribution.

Please email the completed matching gift form to TuckerTigersRoar@gmail.com with Matching Gift in the subject line  or mail to: Tucker PTA, Attention: Matching Gift Program, 435 Ferdinand Day Dr., Alexandria, VA 22304. We will take care of the rest. Thank you!
