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 2017 ran throughout April. During the campaign 341 fundraisers raised £118k for 190 local charities and community groups across the UK. £5,000 in prizes have been distributed to the chosen causes of the top 20 fundraisers.
Small Charity Week
The Small Charity Week Match Fun was a huge success. On Thursday 22nd June 2017 we matched one-time donations to local charities by up to £25. Overall, £56k was raised for over 360 charities in just 30 mins!
Grow Your Tenner
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 pot for direct debit donations has now run out. Direct Debit donations are no longer being matched.
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.
