Matched Funding from your employer – are you eligible? 

Did you know that your fundraising efforts for FoWE could potentially be doubled by your employer if they offer a ‘match funding’ scheme? 

With more fundraising events being confirmed in our school calendar we thought it worth highlighting match funding and how you could help achieve our fundraising targets even faster! 

If your company offers a matched funding scheme it will often match some or all of the the amount raised at a fundraising event (up to a certain level) as long as you have helped out at the event. 

Your involvement in an event could be as little as creating a poster, selling tickets for the raffle or serving refreshments on the day of the fun run - you don’t have to be the event lead! 

If you'd like to help, speak to your employer or your company's HR department to ask if they operate a Matched Funding Scheme. If they do, usually all you need to do is complete an online form provided by your work and possibly provide them with a letter from our treasurer to confirm the details. 

Many companies offer matched funding schemes. Just a few of the companies that have provided this to us in the past include: Argos, GSK, Telereal and Trillium.  Lots of other companies operate a matched funding scheme: BP, PwC, Deloitte, Schroders, Barclays, RBS, Shell, Boots, Ocado and Whitbread to name just a few.
