  1. Log your checks into your fundraising page by entering your HQ and clicking on Enter Offline Donations (Please keep copies of checks for your records.)

Do you accept Corporate Matching Gifts?

Yes! To find out if your employer matches employee gifts, please contact your personnel or human resources office. Many companies will match employee contributions, in some cases doubling or even tripling them!

  • Obtain matching gift forms from your personnel office.
  • Complete the matching gift form (or complete your employer's online web form).
  • Follow your company's policy for submitting the form.

For questions about matching gifts, please contact the Ambassadors 323-361-1700.

Why isn't my money on my fundraising page?

If it has been 7 business days since you mailed your checks and you still do not see the funds credited to your fundraising totals, please contact the Ambassadors at 323-361-1700. For verification we will need the fundraiser's full name, check number and amount.
