PTA Funding Help (updated 23.06.16)
CAN YOU HELP THE PTA SECURE MATCH FUNDING FROM YOUR WORKPLACE FOR THE GALA OR ANY OTHER EVENT? If you work for an organisation that has a match funding policy, any money you raise could be matched by your employer. We understand that the high street banks, building societies, supermarkets and large corporations are likely to do match funding. We have been successful twice in getting the funding from one of our parents who works at Barclays Bank as well as another parent who works for Lloyds Bank. We would be ever so grateful if you could ask your employer if they have a match funding scheme, or if they are willing to match fund any of our events. Please let us know if you can think your employer would be happy to support our school.
