Double matched funding from Greenham Trust
On Friday 24 July charitable organisations will have the chance to treble up to £5,000 of all monies they raise through donations and fundraising activities during this 24-hour period.
With up to £100,000 to be awarded to up to 10 charities area on the day (with a limit of £10,000 of matched funds per fundraising project), this is a valuable opportunity for communities and charities to turn each £1 donated into £3.
To be eligible for consideration, charitable organisations’ fundraising projects must be within the West Berkshire and North Hampshire area, the charities must be registered on The Good Exchange platform and have a new or existing project live by close of business on Monday 13th July. Please visit the event page for more information on the requirements.
In the meantime, any charitable organisations that wish to be considered for the £10,000 double matched fund are encouraged to start planning how they will drive public and local business donations and run fundraising activities on the day in order to reach their £5,000 target. Example fundraising activities include a virtual sport’s day, indoor family challenges, virtual cookery lessons or online quiz or bingo nights or even simpler, sending donation requests to WhatsApp contact lists.
Chris Boulton, Chief Executive of Greenham Trust, said: “We know that the Coronavirus pandemic has presented a lot of challenges for many charitable organisations, particularly in terms of fundraising, and we are delighted to provide this opportunity for them to boost their funding.”
