Matched giving (also known as match funding) gives employees the chance to boost their fundraising as their employer matches the money they have raised. Some companies offer this on a pound-for-pound basis, while others will specify the amount they are prepared to give.
The CAF matched giving scheme allows businesses to match payroll donations and employee fundraising – or pay for volunteer time.
Matching funds for employees’ charitable activities, like the Clocking a Million challenge, is a great way to increase employee engagement, by showing support for the charities they care about.
Matching employees’ charitable activities can lead to improved staff productivity and loyalty, as well as boosting a business’s public perception.
Whether employees are fundraising, volunteering or donating via CAF Give As You Earn, a flexible Matched Giving service means the business can match their achievements.
The CAF scheme is simple to set up, easy to administer and can be customised to suit a matching criteria. Company funds used for CAF Matched Giving are tax-effective and can be deducted from an organisation’s corporation tax. Providing match funding for employees’ giving can boost the perception of your company and appeal to prospective staff.
You can match:
- Payroll donations through your CAF Give As You Earn Payroll Giving scheme.
- Personal employee donations made by cheque, cash, Direct Debit or debit/credit card.
- Individual and team fundraising and volunteering efforts.
