Pine Meer Foundation has chosen several charities that you can select from and make donations to with a check or an online gift via PayPal. A list of these organizations includes those that the Pine Meer Foundation plans to sponsor with matching gifts of up to $1,500 annually for each designated charity. At this time, the minimum matching donation is $50 per individual charitable association or $100 for multiple charitable associations.

Our online form can reduce the time needed to donations to multiple organizations. Especially if you're a West Sider and want to support youth athletic organizations, the Pine Meer Foundation provides flexibility by allowing your gift to be be a specific amount for any of a number of organizations, whenever you want. Once you give to an organization, you can often be constantly bombarded with additional gift requests frequently. However, we can keep your information confidential upon your request, so that you will not be disturbed with additional gift requests. If you would acknowledgement of your donation for tax purposes, that can also be supplied.
Each year our Foundation plans to consider other organizations to matching funds from us. If your group is not listed, and you would like to be considered, please contact us.
Should you be interested in supporting the efforts of the Pine Meer Foundation on an ongoing basis, we would welcome the opportunity to discuss the establishment of an endowment.
Our Foundation charges no added or extra fees in the gifts we transfer to other organizations, other than applicable credit card / paypal processing fees. Administrative fees for our Foundation are minimal as we not pay any salaries; all of our work is currently from volunteers.
