COMPANY MATCHED GIVING
Giving your donations a boost is very simple with Company Matched Giving. Under this scheme, companies pledge to match donations or funds raised by an employee. There are some great benefits all round:
Employees’ morale is boosted by having their efforts supported by their employer
The company benefits from having charitable donations written off against taxable profits
The company gains positive publicity
FOTH increases the money it raises – by as much as double.
If you think that your employer already has a matched giving scheme, or if you would like some more information about charity matched giving or setting up a scheme in your workplace, find out more here and/or speak to a FOTH committee member.
Like most PTAs, the majority of our funds are raised through the events that we run. Some of our most popular events include:
Second-hand Uniform Sale
Spring Social Event
New this year, we will be launching a second-hand skiwear sale, a parents' Trading Post, an easyfundraising initiative, as well as advertising and sponsorship opportunities for local businesses.
We always try and respond to the children’s requests; it's so great to see them having fun at the events or enjoying using a piece of new equipment that FOTH has donated.
We raise money in other ways too. Donations from parents are extremely important. You can donate time, money, items for sale, raffle prizes and auction lots or offers of services and skills.
