Did you know that many companies offer their employees Matched Fund Schemes, whereby employers match money raised by a given charity.
For an introduction to what Matched Funding is, please have a look at the national PTA website.
As Glyn School PSA is a registered charity, these schemes are an excellent way of raising additional money for our school. Our Christmas Fayre Event for example, is an ideal time to ask your HR department if they offer Matched Funding and a little bit of your time could raise double the funds for our school.
If you work for an organisation that has a Matched Funding Policy, any money you raise could be matched by your employer. 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 organisation 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 Matched Funding Scheme, or if they are willing to match fund any of our events. If you can’t help out this time, but you know the company you work for has a Matched Funding Policy, please let us know by emailing K.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Matched Funding could be a really large source of income for us and help us raise money to support and enrich our students experience.
