We believe that local is better. Every single day we are helping thousands of UK community groups do amazing things. Since 2009 we have distributed £40M in online donations, with £5M in match funding given to over 4,000 local organisations.

The demand for grant funding in the UK’s third sector has never been greater. Giving by all UK foundations is worth over £8bn per year across multiple sectors and causes. Today’s changemakers need access to simple, streamlined, efficient and measurable funding process, and that's what we deliver.

Grassroots charities are fearful for the future as 98% say they are concerned about the impact of the cost of living crisis on their organisation’s ability to achieve their aims. This startling statistic is from a survey of Localgiving community members which casts a clear spotlight on both challenges and opportunities.
