Building each other up

Matched Funding

Matched giving (or matched funding) is a simple way of maximising the fundraising efforts of our individual PTA volunteers. It is an informal albeit corporate arrangement between a company and their employee. Companies pledge a sum of money relating to the amount their employee has raised for or donated to the charity of their choice.

For example, a parent, who works for a company that offers matched giving, volunteers to work on the refreshment stall at the PTA summer fair. The profit made by the stall is £100. The parent's employer will then match this amount with a further £100.

Some organisations will match fund on a £ for £ basis, others will stipulate what they are prepared to give. 

Some companies will also pledge time and resources instead of money, so enabling their employees to support a cause during their working week, or offering a tangible service such as the opportunity to print posters, programmes, newsletters and so on. Alternatively, a parent may opt to make a cash donation to the PTA, which again could be matched by their organisation.
