Localgiving’s Northern Ireland match fund campaign begins this week

Small charities and community groups in Northern Ireland can take advantage of online giving platform Localgiving’s latest regional match fund campaign this month. Eligible donations up to £50 received during the campaign will be matched.

The Northern Ireland regional match fund will run from 10am on 14 May to 4pm on 28 May 2015 – or until all the match fund has been allocated.

To take advantage of it your organisation has to register on Localgiving. Currently the service is offering fully funded Localgiving annual memberships to Northern Ireland charities and community groups, funded by Community Foundation NI and the Big Lottery Fund.

The details

Any donations above £50 will only be matched by £50. If all the match fund has been allocated, no more donations will be matched.

Charities can receive a maximum of £500 of the total match fund. Any donations to charities that have exceeded this limit will not be eligible to receive match funding.

Localgiving offers free support and advice on how to prepare for this and other regional match funds.
