Make it go further with Match Funds

Through Localgiving.com’s Match Fund campaigns, everyone can make a difference. A matched donation boosts the impact local charities can have on our communities.

Here’s how match funds work:

   £10.00     Your donation
+ £10.00      Donation matched by Localgiving.com
+ £  2.50      Gift Aid (For UK taxpayers)
   £22.50

After a small processing fee, your £10 single donation with Gift Aid means the charity receives £21.54! A £10 donation without Gift Aid means the charity receives £19.16.
