Matched Giving and Grants

We encourage our people to play an active role in their communities through fundraising and volunteering. Find out more about our schemes below.

For all of our schemes below, you must make your donations to a charity through Charities Trust in order to obtain matched giving. If you are raising funds online please use Sponsor Me. Unfortunately, Royal Mail cannot match funds raised on other online fundraising sites such as JustGiving or GoFundMe. 


Charity Partner Matched Giving

Please note we have paused our Charity Partner of the Year programme for 2021-22. However, you can still apply for match giving for money raised for Action for Children below as part of our Community Support Scheme.
