Petersen’s has pledged to match personal donations to 12 non-profits, up to $1000 per non-profit for 12 weeks. We will be accepting cash, check and Facebook donations (for those charities officially registered with Facebook as a non-profit) on behalf of the 12 pre-selected charities.

Make checks payable to the non-profit you have selected, NOT Petersen’s. All donations, cash and check must be funneled through our store,
by mail or drop off. We will forward them on to the non-profit after making a record of your donation for matching. For charities who are registered with Facebook as a non-profit, we will provide a donation link on our Facebook page the week they are featured.
No! You can donate to as many as you would like, including all 12! But, do please indicate the dollar amounts you’d like to donate to each one. If you are writing a check, you will need to make out a separate check for each non-profit.
You may donate to any of the 12 charities at ANY TIME during our 12 week fundraiser.
Yes! As long you make your check out to the charity you’ve selected (or are providing a cash donation) and you have provided all your contact information for the sending< of a receipt.
For ease of record keeping, we are limiting matching to the 12 we have pre-selected. We hope to do this every year and will gladly take recommendations for local non-profits to feature in the future.
All personal cash or check donations will be forwarded to the non-profits every Monday through the course of the campaign. Petersen’s matching contributions will be made in one check to each charity at the end of the 12 week campaign.
