The MCPASD Education Foundation has received a $5,000 match for its 2016 annual appeal from Intuit, Inc.
The Foundation has raised approximately $7,500 in its first two annual appeals to the community.
“This is a great way for donors to see their contributions maximized,” Foundation board chair Courtney Ward-Reichard said.
Intuit creates business and financial management solutions that simplify the business of life for small businesses, consumers and accounting professionals.
Its flagship products and services include QuickBooks®, TurboTax® and Mint.com. Founded in 1983, the company has approximately 7,900 employees with major offices in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, India, Australia and other locations. Intuit offers employees a generous donation-matching program or provides them with 32 hours off with pay annually to work on charitable programs.
“Intuit continues to work to make a difference in the community and we are excited to have them partner with us,” Education Foundation executive director Perry Hibner said.
The Education Foundation was established in 2011. The Education Foundation has raised more than $200,000 for an endowment fund it has through Madison Community Foundation. The Education Foundation has also awarded more than $36,000 in inspirational grants since 2013 to District staff. Every MCPASD school has been awarded at least two grants. The Foundation has also raised more than $75,000 in grants and pass-through contributions to support District programs.
The Foundation’s appeal letters were sent out in early November. If you didn’t receive a letter but would like to contribute, please contact Hibner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
