Our flagship campaign, Grow Your Tenner 2017, is now live - get doubling those donations! The campaign kicked off on Tuesday 17th October at 10am and will run until the match funding runs out (or midday on Thursday 16th November - whichever comes first).
UPDATE: The £100,000 Grow Your Tenner match fund pot for monthly donations has now run out. This means that monthly donations will no longer be matched. Any future donors will be notified of this on your Localgiving page.
An exciting new chapter for the Localgiving Foundation
We’re delighted to announce that social entrepreneur Tom Latchford has been appointed as the new Chair of the Localgiving Foundation. Tom has helped raise tens of millions of pounds for charities online as founder of Raising IT, which is the UK market leader for websites and fundraising tools for the third sector. He will be bringing his experience, passion and philanthropic pedigree to help more local charities grow.
Marcelle Speller, the Foundation’s founder, has decided to hand the reins to Tom after 9 years’ service. We are hugely grateful to Marcelle for her vision in setting up Localgiving and her leadership throughout our first decade. Marcelle’s passion for local charities continues unabated and she will remain an ambassador for the organisation.
