Match funding from your employer

Match funding is a fantastic scheme whereby employers provide funding for organisations such as primary schools.

It is a very simple and easy means of extra funding. As an employee it doesn’t cost you anything, except maybe a little help at an event but could mean hundreds of pounds of extra money for our PTA, which directly benefits the children. In many cases it is as simple as approaching your HR department and finding out about their scheme (the name of the scheme may differ depending on the company).

Below is a list of example companies (by no means exhaustive!) that offer this. If you think you may be able to help us, then please do get in touch with the school office or one of the PTA committee members.
