Matching gift programs
State Farm® - Matching Gift Program
The State Farm Matching Gift program allows State Farm employees, retirees, and agents who contribute to BCAI to their gifts of $25 to $4,500 per calendar year (minus a small administrative fee) matched by State Farm.
If you have made a qualifying donation, fill out a simple form requesting State Farm to match your gift! Visit the State Farm Companies Foundation site or the SFNet home page for a link. Use the following email address firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm the match with BCAI.
Also, if you are a State Farm employee, retiree, or agent who volunteers at BCAI for 40 or more hours in a year, State Farm will continue to grant our organization $500 through the Good Neighbor Grant program.

Our new scholarship program balances the financial provision, allowing everyone who needs our training to obtain it within our guidelines.

Your donation will cover the day to day operations of BCAI, the foundation that allows us to continue revolving and evolving consistently without taking
