Matched Funding Scheme

The Leathersellers' Foundation supports schools within the Federation with the Matched Funding Scheme.

This scheme has been running since 2015 in which the Foundation generously match fund £1 for £1 funds raised from fundraising activities undertaken by our pupils for a wide range of charities.

  • The scheme helps to encourage pupils to engage in fundraising for charities for the benefit of their community, as a key element of their development, recognising their civic responsibility in wider society.
  • Match funding offers the Leathersellers’ the opportunity to recognise and celebrate those efforts.
  • Both pupils and staff see the Company as being engaged in the life of their school and as a charitable force for good.
  • Both pupils and staff value the recognition that the Company extends to their charitable fundraising; with opportunities such as via short videos, website articles, features in the newsletters and/or on social media.
  • Relationships are created and developed between Leathersellers (staff and liverymen) and the school community (teachers and pupils).

With the support of the programme, we are pleased to have been able to support and raise funds in 2022/23 for charities such as:

BBC Children in Need
Cats Protection
Disaster Emergency Committee
Fourth Reserve Foundation
Friends of Prendergast Vale
Lewisham Foodbank
Macmillan Cancer Support

A huge thank you to the Leathersellers' Foundation for their support.
