  5. Are You A Match? Many businesses will do a company match for employees who donate money (Annual Appeal, Booster,  Auction Fund A Need, etc. ) or volunteer their time to non-profit organizations. St. Matthew’s School is a non-profit entity. Please check with your employer to see if they have a matching program. If they do, please let us know what we need to do to help you participate in that program.
