About us

Our goal

Localgiving is dedicated to providing funding opportunities and advocacy for local charities and community groups in the UK. Our mission is 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.    



Since we launched in 2009:

• Over £9m has been raised and distributed to our members, including £2.2m of match funding
• 4,000 charities and community groups have created a Localgiving page to raise donations
• More than 70,000 individuals have donated to a local charity or community group through the platform
• More than 1,300 fundraiser pages have been created to raise money for a local cause
• More than 12,000 monthly Direct Debit donations have been set up to provide long-term continuous support for local charities

Localgiving is a not-for-profit organisation. We charge £60 + VAT for charity memberships and take a small commission on donations, which goes towards making us sustainable as an organisation. Our core costs are funded by the Localgiving Foundation, with any additional revenue re-invested to provide:

• Enhancements and new features for the site to improve the service for charities, fundraisers and supporters and make online fundraising easier
• Training workshops and resources for local charities and community groups, teaching online fundraising and digital marketing skills
• Marketing and advertising to raise public awareness and encourage donations
• Fundraising campaigns to secure match funding opportunities that allow all charities on the platform to benefit from additional funding
