Payroll Giving is a simple and effective way for employees to make regular donations to a charity directly from their salary.
Gift Matching gives employees the chance to boost their payroll giving, personal donations or fundraising, with the organisation matching the funds donated or raised.
Many companies offer a formal gift matching scheme as part of their own CSR programme and smaller organisations are often happy to match donations if approached to do so. The level of matching depends on the company's policy, as does the upper limit of amount raised.
