Company matched giving is very simple. Companies or businesses pledge to donate to a charity such as ourselves an amount of money relating to the amount that an employee(s) donates or fundraises for us. This could help enormously, and there are several benefits to both ourselves and the company involved:
- employees’ morale is boosted by having their efforts supported by their employer
- the company benefits from having charitable donations written off against taxable profits
- the company can endeavour to get publicity for their giving.
If you think that your employer has a matched giving scheme or something similar already in operation, or if you would like some more information about charity matched giving or setting up a scheme in your workplace, please talk to one of the FOSP team or email email@example.com.
