Q: You've baked tons of cakes, held a raffle, asked all of your friends, family and colleagues for sponsorship money. What else can you do to raise money?
A: You could double your fundraising efforts in an instant by asking your employer to match your donation!
Its easy! Just follow these three simple steps:
Find out if your employer operates a matched funding scheme here.
In the majority of cases, these companies will match your donation pound for pound up to a set amount; a number of these companies will even double match. If you are interested in donating through the matching gift scheme, please contact your Human Resources department who should be able to give you a form to fill in confirming the gift you have made. You then send that form to us so we can confirm receipt of the gift. By using this scheme you can donate double and it only costs you half!
If your company is not listed, you can still ask them for a donation to support your fundraising efforts. You can download a template request letter here.
