John Deere Foundation Programs: Dollars for Doers and Matching Gifts
Alumni, Parents, Staff, and School Supporters:
The John Deere Foundation Programs: Dollars for Doers and Matching Gifts now includes the Bosco Catholic School System as an eligible cause!
Dollars for Doers Program through the John Deere Foundation may provide a grant to any qualifying organization at which an employee volunteers at a rate of $25 per hour with a max of $1,000 per employee per year. The employee must be volunteering with the recipient organization at the time the grant is requested, not a year later. The program follows Deere & Company’s fiscal year (1st of November to 31st of October). Dollars for Doers gifts must be submitted in the tool on or before the 31st of October, to be eligible, in accordance with the program guidelines. The requests can NOT exceed 40 hours at $25 per hour for a maximum of $1,000 total per employee per year.
Matching Gift Program encourages and rewards John Deere employees for their personal philanthropy and giving. The John Deere Foundation provides each eligible John Deere employee with up to $1,000 each fiscal year to match their personal contributions to charitable organizations recognized with 501(c)(3) status by the US IRS and qualifying tax-exempt schools, subject to specific restrictions.
Eligible employees are active US John Deere employees, full-time salaried and production employees and salaried employees in the Part-time Employee Program.
Eligible employees can submit their match through their Employee Self Service (ESS) under the Power for Good program.
The Bosco Catholic School System number for the matching is 530196617_024426.
Thank you for supporting the Bosco Catholic School System.
