Localgiving campaigns are designed to give small local charities the opportunity to take part in national fundraising initiatives; gain practical online fundraising experience and develop connections with new and existing supporters. All Localgiving charity members are automatically included in each of our national campaigns.
Each campaign forms part of our Incentivised Giving Programme, which uses match funding incentives to encourage donations and support for local groups. Dates of upcoming campaigns are included on our events calendar.

Local Hero 2019 will run throughout April 2019. This campaign will highlight the incredible ideas and feats of local charity fundraisers. During the competition participating fundraisers will be ranked on the Local Hero leaderboard. The top 20 fundraisers will be given prizes ranging from £100 to £1,000.
Grow Your Tenner
During our 7th annual Grow Your Tenner, held in December 2019, over 324 Localgiving members raised nearly £360k from 1,649 supporters. During this campaign we matched monthly donations by up to £10 for a full 6 months.
We are delighted to announce that our campaign winners were Pentrebane Zone with a mighty 70 unique donations. Well done also to Borderlands and Manor Gardens for making it a tight contest.
Small Charity Week Challenge
Our Small Charity Week Challenge has now closed! This campaign ran between 18th and 24th June. Throughout the week we highlighted the amazing, and wide ranging causes that local charities and community groups support. We are currently verifying the results – once this is done the top 5 groups on each leaderboard will be awarded financial prizes - totalling £4,000.
Our #GiveMe5 campaigns match 1,000 x £5 donations made over a 24hr period. We ran three #GiveMe5 campaigns in 2016 for Small Charity Week, Giving Tuesday and Local Charities Day.
