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.

Small Charity Week Challenge
Our Small Charity Week Challenge is now live! People seldom recognise the amazing and wide ranging causes that local charities and community groups support. This campaign aims to highlight the huge variety of causes that Localgiving members help - from cricket clubs to community hubs, homeless shelters to PTAs.
Throughout April 2018 we highlighted the incredible ideas and feats of local charity fundraisers. Congratulation go to our Local Hero champion, Lamyaa Hanchaoui, all of our other prize winners and all of the fantastic fundraisers who made Local Hero 2018 such an exciting competition. The top 20 fundraisers were given prizes ranging from £100 to £1,000. Overall, £5,000 in prizes will be distributed among the causes supported by the top 20 fundraisers.During Local Hero 2018, 343 fundraisers raised over £109k for 171 local charities and community groups across the UK.
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.
Grow Your Tenner
Grow Your Tenner 2017 has now come to an end! We have matched £200,000 worth of donations in 1 week. Thank you to all of the charities, community groups, fundraisers and donors who made this such a special campaign!
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.
