Localgiving is a UK-wide not-for-profit and an online donation platform that has helped over 7,000 charitable organisations to raise over £40million online.

For the last three years, they have supported over 450 organisations across all 22 counties in Wales to raise over £2.1million through a dedicated Wales programme.

Are you interested in building sustainable income streams, developing your supporter base and raising unrestricted funding? Online fundraising is easy and very cost effective.

Through their programme, Crowdfund Wales, Localgiving provides a free year of membership, Gift Aid and training in how to fundraise online.

They will support each member to run an online campaign to raise £1,750 towards a need of your choice, which will then unlock £250 of match funding.

There are also a number of grant opportunities to apply for throughout the year. Join the online workshop to find out more!
