Virgin Money Giving and PayPal are running a matched giving campaign for five weeks starting this week.
During their 555 Wednesday Giveaway campaign, Virgin Money Giving will match online donations of £100 or less made to any charity on Virgin Money Giving up to a weekly total of £5,000. Over five weeks, that adds up to £25,000 in matched giving available.
How to get your funds matched
To qualify for matched funding, donations must be made
- between 5pm and 6pm on one of the five Wednesdays starting from and inclusive of 21 May 2014
- be made via PayPal
- be made on a Virgin Money Giving fundraising page
If for any reason the £5,000 total is not matched on any Wednesday by 6pm, then the remaining amount will be added on to the next Wednesday’s total available for matching. So, the full £25,000 will be given away.
Virgin Money Giving say that any qualifying donation will be matched by the Friday of the following week. Also, the amount that they will match is exclusive of Gift Aid.
