They hope to safeguard the sustainability of the local voluntary sector by empowering charitable organisations to connect with supporters, fundraise online and take control of their future.
The key objectives for the Grow Your Tenner campaign are:
- To raise public awareness of the sector and increase the visibility of small local charitable organisations
- To maximise the number of local charities who receive funding and donations online
- To increase the number of supporters donating to and fundraising for local charities
- To encourage supporters to donate regularly through monthly Direct Debit giving
Grow Your Tenner: How it works
Through Localgiving’s match fund campaigns, everyone can make a difference. A matched donation boosts the impact local charities can have on our community.
Here’s how a match fund works:
£10.00 Your donation
+ £10.00 Donation matched by Localgiving
+ £ 2.50 Gift Aid (For UK taxpayers)
After a small processing fee, a £10 single donation with Gift Aid means the charity receives £21.54! A £10 donation without Gift Aid means the charity receives £19.16.
