Local charities match fund competition launched

The Office for Civil Society is seeking to support a fundraising campaign with at least £250,000 of match funding.  The match funding should be used to encourage donations to local charities and community groups. It will help them to raise vital income, attract new donors, and raise awareness of their work. It is part of plans announced by the Minister for Civil Society, Rob Wilson, for a Local Charities Day, a celebration of local charities and community groups that will take place later this year. 

Applications are invited to deliver the match funding through a fundraising campaign. Applicants must have experience of delivering match-funded fundraising campaigns that benefit the whole or part of England, and the capacity to release the match funding through a campaign starting in December 2016 at the latest. Government is also particularly interested in proposals that bring together partnerships capable of expanding the reach and impact of the match funding campaign. Apply to deliver match funding by 21 August 2016. We anticipate announcing the successful applicant in autumn 2016.
