Donation Process

Thank you for supporting the Willow Glen Education Foundation via an online donation, event ticket purchase, or other contribution.

This page explains our donation process, and may answer many of your questions surrounding our online giving activities.

In addition to accepting online contributions year-round, we also run fundraising campaigns at different times, including our RamStarter school year kickoff fundraising, our annual Tasting & Auction, scholarship funds, Silicon Valley Gives (2015 and 2016 only), and other activities on behalf of specific groups at WGMS and/or WGHS.

All donations to the Willow Glen Education Foundation are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Please consult your tax accountant.

All payments for online donations are routed through PayPal, which allows you to donate via your credit card or through your PayPal account. You do NOT need a PayPal account to make a donation, but you do need a credit card.

The WG Foundation is charged a fee for online credit card transactions. This fee is typically around 3%, and donors will be given the option to increase their donation to cover these expenses. If this option is not exercised by a donor, the amount we receive will be less than the full amount of the donation.

Tasting Tickets

If you’ve purchased Tasting & Auction tickets, your name will be held at the door, without the need for bringing tickets or producing any receipt when you arrive. Hard tickets are available for those who purchase tickets from a volunteer and for the use of sponsors. Please let us know if you’d prefer a printed ticket, and we’ll try to accommodate requests when possible.


As you complete your donation via PayPal, you will receive an instant confirmation from that system. Your confirmation “Thank You” letter and “IRS Tax Letter” will come via email from the Willow Glen Foundation after your donation is received. If you require something specific, please let us know via special note with your donation or comment below.

We welcome corporate matching options to increase the impact of your gift. Please ask your human resources department, and let us know if we need to complete any forms or take any action to facilitate a corporate match from your employer.
