Double your impact of Time and Treasure
Thank you for being a Friend of Scouting donor!
An easy way to double or triple your contribution is through employee giving programs. Matching gifts raised over $100,000 for our council in just one year!
Your employer may also provide a Dollars for Do’ers program as a way to recognize your “one hour per week” of volunteerism—we know that hour really adds up! When you search in the Double the Donation box at the top of this page, the results will give you all of the details you will need to complete the brief process. We have also included some FAQ’s at the bottom of this page.
Please help us spread the word by sending this link to others in your units that could be taking advantage of this opportunity to benefit local Scouting. Thank you for your generosity.
Get A Match, Easy As 1-2-3
If your company offers gift matching, your Human Resource department should provide you with a matching gift form to send to the Silicon Valley Monterey Bay Council, BSA council office, along with or after your donation. Some companies use an online portal instead- your HR department will have the best info!
Once you’ve filled out your part of the paperwork, send it in to the council office (or send us an email letting us know you’ve started something in an online portal). We’ll take care of the rest by verifying receipt of your gift, and returning the form to your employer for matching funds.
