Many companies have matched funding schemes, where they will match the amount you raise, or they have schemes where they will make a contribution towards your fundraising
Find out if your employer has either of these type of schemes! Even if they don’t have a scheme, they may well be willing to make a contribution.
Companies which we know have matched giving schemes (at the time of writing) include Abbey, Barclays (including Barclaycard), Boots, BP, Diageo, HBOS, HSBC, National Grid, Nomura, RBS, Sainbury’s, and Zurich, but there are lots more than just these ones.
Some schemes may require you to provide an official receipt from us for the money you have raised, and if this is the case, please read the receipts section below.
There may be cases where you need an official receipt from Walk the Walk.
For example, if you are applying for matched funding from your employer, some schemes require an official receipt from the charity, for the money you have raised, to be attached to your application. Alternatively, one of your sponsors or donors, especially if they are a company, may require a receipt.
If you need one so that you can claim matched funding, please state this when requesting the receipt, as well as the name of your employer, because it helps us with our accounting.
Sending in your fundraising? Please request any receipt that you might need by enclosing a note or covering letter when you send in your sponsor money. If you have online fundraising to be included on your receipt as well, then please state the name of your fundraising page, for example www.walkthewalkfundraising.org/midnightmoonwalkers, in the letter.
