The Matched Giving Programme encourages Lloyds Banking Group colleagues in Scotland to get involved in the voluntary sector and to help fundraise through personal participation in events or give their time freely to support the work of charities throughout Scotland. Our Matched Giving Programme ensures our funding reaches charities at a grass-roots level across Scotland, creating a lasting positive impact in local Scottish communities.
If you are a charity and you have Lloyds Banking Group colleagues fundraising and/or volunteering for your charity you can ask them if your charity would be eligible to receive Matched Giving should they wish to apply.
Every permanent Lloyds Banking Group colleague in Scotland is entitled to claim up to £1000 in each calendar year from the Matched Giving Scheme for a charity for which they have either raised money for or given time to. We will match every pound they raise or donate £8 per hour of voluntary time given, to a maximum of £500 for fundraising events and/or £500 for voluntary time given, provided that the claim falls within the rules of the scheme and the charity is eligible for funding.
If you are a Lloyds Banking Group colleague you can apply online via Group Interchange. Please check the guidelines before applying and if you require assistance please contact the Bank of Scotland Foundation team on 0345 1241351.
The funding year runs from January to December.
