Celebrate Local Charities Day on Friday 16th December with match funding, training & more!

Friday 16th December sees the launch of Local Charities Day - a dedicated day to shine a spotlight on small, local charities and help them to thrive by demonstrating the vital work that they do. 

Click here to read more about the day.

Here is a summary of some of the ways that you can get involved with the day and we'll be in touch again soon with more on each of these!

Match funding 

Join Localgiving's 'Grow Your Tenner' where they will be matching one-time donations by up to £10 and regular monthly donations by up to £10 a month for the first three months. Each local group taking part in the campaign is eligible to claim up to £2,500 of match funding! This has been contributed to by a private philanthropist and the Office for Civil Society.

On December 16th #GiveMe5 will double the value of 1,000 x £5 donations made over a 24hr period. To take part, charities simply need to be a member of Localgiving, which is entirely FREE for Small Charities Coalition Members!

To take part in these opportunities you need to have an active Localgiving membership. This normally costs £72 per year but Localgiving are generously giving away 12 months free membership to Small Charities Coalition members until then end of 2016. To sign up click here and enter code SCC2016.

For more information head on over to Localgiving's website.


You can check out the Local Charities Day training from Global Giving and webinars from the FSI, both of which are also FREE!
