Corporate Dollar Matching

Many companies have programs where they match dollar for dollar money raised by employees for charity. The charities you are riding for are all registered charities and every donation is tax deductible. If your company does not have a matching program, many organisations are prepared to make a donation to a charity to which their employees have committed.

Ask your Human Resource department or your Corporate Social Responsibility section if your company has a fund matching program. If not suggest that it might be a good thing to establish. Not only will they reap the tax benefits, but now is a good time for your company to be seen to support people in need.

If no fund matching program exists ask your company if it would be prepared to support your effort by making a donation to help you.
