Making life a little brighter one gift at a time
The Pella Rolscreen Foundation Matching Gift Program provides Pella Corporation team members a way to direct the resources of the Foundation towards projects and organizations that are important to them.
The Pella Rolscreen Foundation will match eligible gifts dollar-for-dollar from a minimum gift of $25 to a maximum of $5,000 annually per employee. Retirees’ maximum will be reduced to $1,000 the year after their retirement. Gifts may be cash or securities that have a quoted market value. Testamentary bequests, dues, subscriptions, fees, tuition, raffle tickets, insurance premiums, and pledges do not qualify. Smaller gifts cannot be combined to achieve the minimum level for eligibility. Gifts collected from various individuals and then grouped together as one gift from a qualified donor do not qualify.
A recipient organization must be one of the following:
- a charity that qualifies as exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS,
- a government entity, or
- a post-secondary educational institution.
Over 1,100 organizations are currently approved for matching gifts. Gifts to organizations not currently approved for matching gifts will be considered when this form and appropriate information are provided to the Foundation. Organizations ineligible for matching gifts include but are not limited to:
- Those that give less than 70% of their income to the purpose for which they exist
- International organizations that fund primarily outside the United States
- Political, religious, and denominational organizations, with the exception of approved House of Worship Building Projects
- Controversial, environmental, or legislative groups detrimental to Pella Corporation operations
Matching gifts are paid quarterly. Approved gifts receive by the end of March, June, September, and December will be paid during the following month.
To use the Matching Gift Program, download the Matching Gift application form, complete the Donor Section and mail it with your gift to the organization. The organization will complete the Recipient Section, supply any additional information, and return the form to the Foundation. For those that give online, complete the Donor Section, as well as organization name and address in the Recipient Section, and send to the Foundation Administrator along with proof of donation.
All questions regarding interpretation, application, or administration of the provisions of this program will be determined by the Pella Rolscreen Foundation.
