Match funding is a quick, easy way to support your good cause with an extra cash boost.
Every colleague from within any of our businesses is entitled to £ for £ match funding from Bibby Line Group up to an agreed amount, on top of what you raise for your chosen charitable cause.
Bibby Line Group will match fund up to a maximum of £1,000 per event, with a match funding limit of £2,000 per employee per calendar year.

Samuel took part in a fun run and raised £1,500 for his chosen registered charity. After he sent the money to the charity and received a receipt back he went online to fill in the GSB MF application form. The GSB team reviewed the application and sent an extra £1,000 to his charity, meaning the charity received £2,500 in total. Samuel could then fundraise for another event later in the year and receive another £1,000 in match funding.
Martina Shannon and her team at the BFS Dublin office raised a fantastic £1,484 for the Laura Lynn Children’s Hospice, organising various events throughout the year including a Coffee Morning for staff and clients and creating hampers for Christmas and Easter. The charity received an additional £1,000 through our match funding initiative, with employees also volunteering their time to paint superheroes on the hospice windows, a charity Climb and a Woman’s Mini Marathon. This means Laura Lynn Children’s Hospice received £2,484 in total.
