Employer Matching Gifts
Many employers will match donations made to charitable organizations!
STEP VA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which means we qualify for the majority of employer matching gifts. By participating in employer matching gift programs, you can double the impact of your donation. Some employers will even match gifts 3:1!
If you are not sure if the company you work for will match your donations, please ask! If needed, our Tax Exempt Number is 46-3919345.
Here are some of the companies that are known to match employee donations:
Bank of America
The Boeing Company
The CarMax Foundation
Dominion Virginia Power
Johnson and Johnson
If your employer matches gifts, please send us an email so we can add them to our list.
We are tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code; therefore donations are tax deductible as allowed by law. Contact your tax adviser for further information.

The Lily Fund
We are proud to announce the establishment of a scholarship fund in honor and memory of a very special little girl named Lily Noakes! . Lily participated in our 2014 Summer Arts Camp: she was quiet and shy but danced and said her lines, ; a tiny girl who stepped up big and bold when it was time to take center stage. Lily was just like all of our special kids, except that she had cancer. Lily’s fight ended on January 23, 2015.
Lily Funds will be used to provide scholarships to allow deserving people with disabilities to participate in our programs.
To donate: Please use our Network for Good link above and select “Lily Fund” for “Apply my donation to….” You can also donate by sending a check (made out to “STEP VA, Inc. – Attn: Lily Fund”) to P.O. Box 42154, Fredericksburg, VA 22404.
Thank you for helping us to remember and honor this special camper who made a difference to STEP VA.
