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!
