The NBPA (a registered Charity) has been approached by a family whose Company operates a Matched Giving Programme.  Such a programme gives employees the chance to boost their fundraising for a charity whereby the employer matches the money raised.  Some of these programmes match on a pound-for-pound basis while others specify the amount they’re prepared to give to a charity for their employees’ volunteering efforts.  We understand that generally speaking banks and building societies, insurance companies, supermarkets, utility providers, phone companies and car manufacturers are known to offer Matched Giving Programmes.  Should any other families work for a Company that may offer such a scheme and you are volunteering at our NBPA Jubilee Fete this Saturday we would welcome hearing from you.  Please contact you in advance.
