RE: Match Funding
You will hopefully be aware of the fantastic work we are doing to raise funds for the charity that supports Danesfield School. I wanted to take this opportunity to remind you about the match funding scheme and how a little bit of your time could raise double the funds for our kids.
If you work for an organisation that has a match 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 match 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 match funding policy, please let us know. This could be a really large source of income for us and help us raise money for the new server the school need to operate smoothly.
If you are able to help us this way, please let me know and we can discuss your companies’ requirements.
As always, Thank you for your support.
