LocalGiving are offering a free year of help with online fundraising for charitable groups in Wales - plus lots of match funding. They have 190 groups signed up in Wales so far, who are already receiving training and successfully fundraising.

The supportthey offer includes helping you to set up an online donation page, plan online appeals and encourage individuals to undertake challenges, raising money for you online. This is a completely free opportunity to explore a new income stream and for many donations to be doubled. Here is the key information about the programme:

For the last 9 years Localgiving has helped charitable organisations to raise over £13 million online and in July, thanks to generous funding and support from Big Lottery Wales, a new Development Programme for Wales was launched. Through the programme, Localgiving will work with 250 local community groups across Wales. It is an entirely free opportunity and includes:

  • A year’s free Localgiving membership (usually £96) for local voluntary & community groups. This will give each group an online donation page and also access to gift aid - an extra 25% - on all of their donations, whether they are registered charities or not.
  • £200 match funding (the first £200 you raise through Localgiving will be doubled) to make that first 'ask' for donations much easier
  • Opportunities for match funding throughout the year, such as Grow Your Tenner, which doubles autumn donations. Please click here for more info on our different match funding campaigns
  • Bespoke training around online fundraising and 1:1 support from a dedicated, locally-based Localgiving team member

It is a completely risk free opportunity to look at a new income stream, whilst being completely supported. If you would like to sign up to Localgiving all you need to do is follow these simple steps: join.localgiving.org/wales and enter this promo code during registration to access your free year: WALES250

Their next match fund campaign, Grow Your Tenner, is coming up really soon and this is a really big earner for groups to unlock so much free money. Donations and monthly gifts can be doubled between 17th October and 16th November 2017 - for more information on this opportunity please click here

There are now only 60 places still available for the free Wales programme! If you would like to register with Localgiving then it is really important to have done this in plenty of time before Grow Your Tenner starts so LocalGiving can help you make the most of it.
