If you work for an organisation that has a match funding policy, any money you raise could be matched by your employer.
For an introduction to what Matched Funding is, please have a look at the national PTA website: http://www.pta.co.uk/funding/faqs-match-funding.aspx
Companies may match the fundraising total for an event, or for the stall that their employee is working on. Usually, the employee will need to supply them with a letter from the Friends detailing the date and nature of the event, together with the total raised.
We understand that the high street banks, building societies, supermarkets and large corporations are likely to do match funding, but these schemes are not exclusive to the major corporate giants. If you work for an independent company, they may be interested in charitable giving through match funding too.
We would be grateful if you could see if your employer has a match funding scheme, or if they are willing to match fund any of our events. A list of companies that have offered matched funding can be found here: Full list of companies offering matched funding.
If you are able to help us this way, please let us know and we can discuss your companies’ requirements. If you can’t help out this time, but you know the company you work for has a match funding policy, please let us know.
