Double the funds you raise by asking your employer to support your efforts and match your fundraising!
Many companies now have a program in place called 'matched funding' as part of their corporate social responsibility efforts. This means they support their employees' charitable efforts by matching their fundraising dollar for dollar.
Talk to you your HR department, as even if they don't have a matched funding program in place, they may consider making a donation to support your efforts for a charitable cause.
Approach your employer face-to-face, communicating your message, connection to the cause and your fundraising goal. If this is not possible, send an email or call the appropriate person.
MS can supply any further information or official documentation you may need, and send your company a tax-deductible donation receipt. Make sure you let us know if your employer agrees to match the money you raise and we’ll send a letter of thanks and a certificate to you and your company following your fundraiser.
If not through matched funding, your employed may like to make a company donation, help you promote your fundraising activity or allow you to fundraise in the workplace.
If you need more information on how your employer can support you doing it for MS, please contact our fundraising team on 1300 733 690 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
