Boost your employees' giving

Matching your employees charitable donations shows a commitment to the communities and causes your staff care about. The scheme is simple to set up, easy to administer and can be tailored to suit your needs. The funds you use for matched giving are tax-effective and can be deducted from your corporation tax.

You can match:

  • Employee payroll giving donations through your CAF Give As You Earn scheme
  • Personal donations made by cheque, cash, Direct Debit or debit/credit card
  • Individual and team fundraising and volunteering efforts

Ways to offer matched giving

Using our products, we can help you set up a matched giving scheme in a way that works for your business.

Matched payroll giving

Match the donations to charity that your employees make through Give As You Earn, our payroll giving scheme. Limits can be set on how much you match eg fixed match, a percentage or a maximum cap.

If you have CAF Give As You Earn, it’s a great way to increase take up in your scheme and there’s no additional fee for using this service.

Match from your Company Account

Run a matched giving scheme using the funds in your Company Account. If you have a Company Account set up with CAF, you can use these funds to run a matched giving scheme. You can choose to use these funds to match employee donations, volunteering or fundraising Boundaries can be set for matching requests from your people eg caps or specific application criteria.

When you accept a request you can then use your account to distribute funds to the charity your employee is fundraising for.
