An introduction to online fundraising webinar - June 27th

It’s never been more important to harness the power of online fundraising, so we are delighted to open registration for our latest webinar, offering an introduction to this essential area for charities and grassroots organisations.

We are dedicated to supporting the nation's CICs.

Too small to register as a charity? Not a problem! Localgiving is uniquely placed to offer Community Interest Companies (CICs) the benefits and opportunities usually only available to larger charities.


Appeal focus: Bristol Refugee Festival 2024

"Our festival programme is a huge collective effort and brings much joy each year. But as costs rise, it’s becoming increasingly challenging to fund activities and ensure that the people who need our help most can lead and participate in the programme."

"If it were not for supporters like yourself providing financial aid in the form of grants and ongoing contributions, we would simply not be able to run our charity and enable our vital and much-needed work to continue. For this, we offer our deepest gratitude."

Charity of the month - Strand Arts Centre

Strand Arts Centre delivers a diverse programme of creative and cultural activity to improve the social mobility and quality of life for the people of East Belfast and beyond. It occupies and preserves Northern Ireland's only surviving traditional art-deco cinema. Its programme has a focus on film but also includes theatre and music, both live performances & skills development workshops. The Strand is an inclusive, shared space, proud of its economically, socially & politically diverse audience.

"Localgiving has been fantastic in providing a capable online fundraising platform that is easy to setup, user friendly and allows us to claim Gift Aid. It has also meant we’ve had access to extra fundraising opportunities and grants such as Magic Little Grants and more recently the National Grid community fund." -
