Fund Raising through Company Matching Program

While teachers were writing their grant applications, EFT determined how much money we can give in grants. Even with all of our fundraising this year we are a bit short of our $20,000 goal. We add every dollar that comes in as a donation during this time. Can you help us meet more teachers' requests for grants that will help them enhance their students' learning? If you work for a company that matches donations you can double your impact on our public schools. We have a list of companies we know match donations on our website. Please select the Donate Now tab on the left of the window for donation and matching information. Thank you for helping us bridge the gap!
