Charity match giving
Many companies find charity match giving or funding a great way to support staff in whatever fundraising they are doing for whatever the causes close to their heart.
It can also be a great way to increase employee engagement. Matching employees’ charitable activities can lead to improved staff productivity and loyalty, as well as boosting an employer’s public perception.
Matched giving schemes will normally involve pledging a sum of money relating to the amount their employee has raised for or donated to the charity of their choice. Some organisations will match funds on a £ for £ basis, others will stipulate what they are prepared to give.
Corporate grants from trusts or foundations are a fantastic and valuable source of funding, but competition for these sources is fierce. Are you able to help us by facilitating a grant from your companies foundation or charity?
Digital charity box
If you have an electronic point of sale, then your customers could potentially donate whenever they buy goods or services from you, using a card, through the Pennies scheme.
It’s innovative, inclusive and affordable for everyone. It is easy to join and maintain with minimal staff involvement and most importantly, all the money raised stays on the island.
