Supporting Santander to match employee fundraising efforts

Santander have a long running and successful matched giving scheme, supporting and encouraging staff to go that extra mile for charity. The matched funds are provided by the Santander Foundation and CCWorks manage the programme on behalf of the bank's foundation.

We've been supporting the matched giving scheme for 8 years and in that time have advised thousands of employees on the specifics of the programme and ensured that millions of pounds of matched giving has successfully reached thousands of charities.

In practical terms we do the following things to support the programme including:

  • Providing a telephone and email helpline for queries from staff and charities
  • Ensure all applications for funding meet the 'matching' criteria
  • Provide insight and reporting to the foundation management on regular intervals
  • Collate evaluation through impact surveys
