Many businesses run a matched funding scheme as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility Program. In other words, they will match the funds raised at an event if an employee was involved in helping to run the event. This potentially allows us to double the money we raise at events throughout the year.
Many companies do this, especially banks, public utilities and large multi-nationals. Some examples are Abbey, Alliance & Leicester, Allied Domecq, AXA, BAA, Barclays, Booker, Boots, BP, Bradford & Bingley, British Gas, BT, Cable & Wireless, Carlsberg Tetley, Co-operative Bank, Diaego, HSBC, Lloyds TSB, M&S, Microsoft, N Power, National Grid, Natwest, Norwich Union, O2, RSB Group, Royal Bank of Scotland, Sainsburys, Slough Estates, Tesco, Unilever, United Utilities, W H Smith, Woolwich, Yorkshire Bank and many others.
Many other companies will do this if asked, even though they don't have a formal scheme. Please check out your employer's policy and get in touch with us if you can help. This really is a way you can make a huge difference for minimum effort!
