Grow Your Tenner 2016 is now live!
Local Giving are now matching one-time donations by up to £10 and monthly donations up to £10 a month for the first 3 months.
Thanks to the Office for Civil Society, the total match fund for this year’s Grow Your Tenner is now £345,000! This means each charity will have the chance to benefit from up to £2,500 of match funding: £1,000 from one-time donations and £1,500 from Direct Debits.
Grow Your Tenner has raised over £5 million for local charities and community groups across the UK over the last five years. This year Local Giving will be matching one-time donations made to Localgiving members by up to £10 and regular monthly donations by up to £10 a month for the first three months.
Regular donations are hugely important for small local charities – helping them to stabilise their finances and plan for the future. That’s why this year we’re encouraging more people to set up a Direct Debit to a cause they care about.
