Matched Giving - Can Your Employer Help?

 

 

If you work for an organisation that has a match giving scheme, 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, such as the tombola. We understand that the high street banks, building societies, supermarkets and large corporations are likely to do match giving 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 giving too. We would be grateful if you could see if your employer has a matched giving scheme, or if they are willing to match any of our events. If you cannot help out this time, but you know the company you work for has a matched giving scheme please let us know. This could be a really good source of income for the PTA to help us raise money for much needed resources and equipment at our School.

School 50th Anniversary Summer Ball

‘What a Fabulous Evening!’

We had not envisaged that organising and hosting a summer ball in the grounds of the school would become such a challenge. It had its ups and downs, but we said it would be the Summer Ball of the year and think that you all agree we did not disappoint. You said “Fantastic night! Very proud to be part of such an amazing school community!”, “A brilliant night, great value for money, something a bit different not too far from home, great food, fantastic band”, “What a night?! It was amazing! I am so pleased to have taken part! It was a perfect evening”. Thank you for joining us and making it the perfect and fabulous evening that it was. And what about Drunken Uncle – Outstanding!

Huge big thanks to the people and businesses who kindly sponsored and donated auction and raffle prizes at our summer ball.
