By giving through a company matched-giving scheme, you could double the value of your donation to SCI. Contact your employer to find out if they support matched-giving.

Portrait of Alumnus Dr Anh-Minh NguyenSome employers run a matched-giving scheme as a way of encouraging their employees to give more to charity.

Donations made through a matched-giving scheme are “topped up” by the donor’s employer—sometimes pound-for-pound—increasing the amount that the donor’s chosen charity receives.

The details of how matched-giving schemes work vary from one company to another. Some schemes top-up donations by a percentage of the original gift. Other schemes offer to match gifts up to a certain amount.  

Many major companies run a matched-giving scheme
