Claim volunteer funding at The Hunslet Club?

Match Funding

Can you help increase funding for our Club through matched funding?


Many companies offer their employees the chance to take part in matched fundraising schemes.  Employees must be involved in a fundraising event as a volunteer or offer time as a volunteer.  Companies will then pledge a sum of money relating to the amount the employee has raised.   Some companies will match funding on a £ for £ basis others will specify what they are prepared to give or have a certain criteria that must be met.

What should I do?

If you work for a company that offers matched funding just follow these steps:

  • Speak to your CSR Manager or HR department or check your company’s  intranet to see what types of funding are available.  In smaller companies it may be more appropriate to speak to your Line Manager in the first instance
  • Complete any request/authorisation forms that are needed.  The Hunslet Club can provide written confirmation of fundraising events etc if needed
  • Contact Bernadette Carroll – with details of the proposed matched funding or for assistance needed
