Grow Your Tenner 2016 will launch on the 18th of October at 10am
Grow Your Tenner is our flagship annual national match fund campaign. During Grow Your Tenner, all donations of up to £10 are matched until the full match fund is emptied. Grow Your Tenner 2015 matched one-time donations of up to £10 and regular monthly donations of up to £10 for three months. 2015 was the fourth successive year of the campaign. 2016's campaign is due to launch on Tuesday the 18th of October.
Grow Your Tenner has raised over £5 million for local charities and community groups across the UK over the last five years.
All Localgiving members are automatically included. If you are not already a member and would like to sign your organisation up to take part in this year's campaign, you can join Localgiving here.
“The Grow Your Tenner campaign is simply amazing. It encourages people to give and give more frequently. For a small charity such as ours, the Grow Your Tenner campaign has seen donations increase at a vital time of the year when quite often, we struggle.”
- Kari Lucas, St Werburghs City Farm
We are currently fundraising for this year's match fund.
We've so far secured £100,000 from a private philanthropist and are aiming to raise another £400,000 to provide a total fund of £0.5m for this year's campaign.
If you are a funder or philanthropist who is interested in leveraging your funding to help thousands of local charities and community groups across the UK, please visit our appeal page here - where you can donate to the fund online, or contact us for more information at email@example.com or on 0300 1112340.

All you need to do is make sure that you have a paid and active Localgiving membership while the campaign is running. All groups with a paid Localgiving membership will be automatically eligible for match funding through the campaign. If you're a supporter, details will be revealed closer to the time to let you know how you can support your favourite local charities and community groups during the campaign.
At the moment, there is £100,000 ready for Grow Your Tenner. This year we're running an appeal to try and reach £500,000. Details of this will be available soon.
Grow Your Tenner will start at 10am on Tuesday 18th October and end at 5pm on Thursday 17th November or when the fund runs out (whichever comes first).
These are yet to be decided but we will give you enough notice so that you can start planning your campaigns. One thing that is certain is it will be concentrated on growing £10 donations!
