Matched giving and partnerships

Make a bigger impact on the lives of children in need, maximise donations and create a greater reach

What is matched giving?

Matched Giving is when an amazing partner or supporter decides to match every dollar that is donated to Barnardos Australia up to a certain agreed amount. 

That means for every dollar raised, this will be matched by a company or individual, which then doubles the donations raised for an appeal or campaign, which means we can essentially help more vulnerable children and families.


Benefits of being a matched giving partner

Matched giving partnerships provide your organisation with a unique way of supporting Barnardos goal of helping vulnerable children and their families while also promoting employee engagement and enhancing your company’s reputation, through brand exposure. 

Increased impact

When your organisation matches public donations up to an agreed amount, you are effectively doubling the impact of each donation. This means that your company can have an even greater impact on the lives of children in need

Employee engagement

By offering employees the opportunity to support Barnardos Australia, your organisation can increase employee engagement and personal fulfilment. This, in turn, can lead to improved morale, higher job satisfaction, and lower turnover rates
