Dear AYS045  Volunteers and Parents,

Region 45 is lucky to have all the volunteers and players who make our region special.  It’s amazing to watch our community coming together for our kids. We continue to be humbled by all of your efforts, and now it seems we can thank your employer too!

You may be eligible to receive a charitable (or matching) donation from your employer for your AYSO45 volunteer hours. A number of companies in the area have charitable programs to make donations to organizations their employees support. This is one more way that your volunteer work can help the kids in our area.   All donations go towards our Scholarships for kids in our area.

AYSO is a California nonprofit corporation, exempt from Federal income tax as an organization described in section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

The AYSO Federal identification number is 95-6205398.

The AYSO National non-profit address is:
19750 S. Vermont Avenue, Suite 200
Torrance, CA 90502-1133

Your company AYSO Region 45 donation page should list this non-profit information, but AYSO National will redirect donation funds to AYSO Region 45.

Many companies in our area have programs which match volunteer hours.   So the time you spend coaching or as referee can be doubled by your company’s program.   We are already setup for matching donations at Google, Cisco, Intel, Microsoft, eBay/Paypal, Genentech, and Apple. There are other local corporations who do this too and we can help you setup the matching for your company. We would welcome any and all donations.

We welcome any specific instructions you can share from your employer. We’d like to put together a database of this information moving forward.

Below is how the Google program works. If you have an employer who does this and you can share specifics or have additional ideas for this type of employer fund raising effort, please email me anything you feel would be relevant and helpful.
