Matched Giving Scheme

Lloyds Banking Group

The scheme is open to any Lloyds Banking Group employees based in Northern Ireland, including Group subsidiaries. 

The Scheme is a great way to increase funds for your favourite charity. From jumble sales to jail breaks, parachute jumps to pram-races, you can claim up to £1,000 a year to match funds you raise for registered charities that meet the Scheme's eligibility criteria.

You can also claim for time given to eligible charities, out of working hours, too!

Lloyds Bank Foundation for Northern Ireland have been processing applications for Matched Giving from Lloyds Banking Group employees in Northern Ireland since August 2009.  We are delighted to announce that the 2015 scheme is now open for applications.
