Corporate Match

Corporate Matching Gifts and Corporate Giving Programs

The United Way Campaign Giving Programs are now underway in the Chicagoland area.

Since SWS is a nonprofit - 501 (c)(3) agency, you may be able to designate the school as the recipient of your charitable contribution.

Call the school office at 630-529-1721 and ask for Justin Busche or email us at to learn more!

An easy way to double your gift to
 St. Walter School…
 If your employer offers a Matching Gift program, your contribution to St. Walter School could be doubled!

Please take a moment to check with your personnel office today to see if they offer a Matching Gift Program and find out the steps to take to initiate a match.

Whether you are one of our parents, grandparents or a friend of the school, we thank you for making the extra effort - and for your doubled support!

If you have not made a matching gift before and need assistance, call the school office at 630.529.1721 and ask for Mrs. Mary Kate Warco.

Annual Appeal

Corporate matching gifts to parish grade schools are accepted for the Diocesan Annual Appeal. Not only will you be able to double your support, but your children will directly benefit from your gift.

In addition, St. Walter Parish receives credit for your donation enabling the parish’s Diocesan Appeal goal to be met. It’s a win, win situation for everyone!

  1. How to process your Diocesan Appeal gift as a matching gift.
  2. Pick up a matching gift form at your company’s personnel office.
  3. Complete the form as instructed.
  4. Make your check payable to St. Walter School, not the parish or to the Diocesan Appeal.
  5. Place your completed matching gift form, along with your check, in the envelope that your received at Mass or that was mailed to you from the Diocesan Appeal office. At your earliest possible convenience, drop it in the collection basket at any of the Masses or mail it to the Diocesan Appeal office.
  6. Upon receipt of your donation, the Diocesan Appeal office will:
  • Record your family’s donation.
  • Credit St. Walter Parish with your donation enabling them to meet their Diocesan Appeal goal.
  • Forward your check to St. Walter School.
  • Forward you company’s matching gift to St. Walter School as soon as it is received.
