Localgiving's Grow Your Tenner campaign to match donations to small charities in England

Localgiving.com, the online giving site which supports local charities and community groups, is offering to match up to £10 of donations made, up to £500,000.

Small, local charities in therefore have an opportunity to raise a combined total of £1 million. The campaign starts on 25 September.

The is made possible by a grant from the Office for Civil Society.

Donors who are tax payers can also make donations using Gift Aid: a £10 donation becomes £20, and with Gift Aid that becomes £22.50.

Donors can of course give more, up to £1,000 via the site, but only the first £10 will be matched.

Regular giving rewarded

Localgiving.com’s Grow Your Tenner campaign is also designed to encourage monthly giving. If you commit to give a regular amount each month to a local charity, Localgiving will match up to £10 for the first three months.

So, the donor’s initial £30 becomes £60 or £67.50 with Gift Aid.

How to benefit from Grow Your Tenner

To take part in the campaign local charities in England should ensure that they are registered on Localgiving.com.
