Grow Your Tenner FAQs
How long does Grow Your Tenner last?
Grow Your Tenner will run until the £500,000 fund has been matched.
The £500,000 match fund pot has been split into two allowing for £250,000 for single donations (including donations made through fundraising pages) and £250,000 for monthly donations. So, it’s possible that one of the £250,000 pots might close before the other.
How much matched funding can Graham receive?
While the funds last, each eligible charity can receive up to £1,000 of match funding on single donations and up to £10,000 in monthly donations.
How will we know how much our group has raised?
To see how much your group has raised, log in to your Localgiving.com account and download a financial report.
Can a supporter make multiple doubled donations to the same charity?
In keeping with the spirit of Grow Your Tenner, if a supporter wishes to make multiple donations to one charity during the campaign in order to get multiple matches, we would advise them to set-up a monthly direct debit donation instead. We’ll match up to £10 a month for six months and making a monthly donation provides sustainable support a charity.
Localgiving.com will monitor donations and reserves the right to withdraw match funding from any supporter if we feel that they are not upholding the spirit of Grow Your Tenner.
With monthly donations (matched for 6 months), what happens when the pot of funds run out?
When someone sets up a monthly donation during Grow Your Tenner, the matched funding is reserved. So when the £500,000 fund runs out, monthly donations will still be matched up to £10 a month for six months.
Will existing monthly donations to Graham also be matched?
No. Only monthly donations set up between 10am on October 15 and the date the £500,000 Match Fund pot runs out will be eligible for matched donations.
Is there anything we can use to help us reach our fundraising goal?
There are Grow Your Tenner flyers and new, editable charity cards that you can print off and hand out to supporters or share online. We’re also holding a series of free webinars, on how to run a successful Match Fund campaign and Fundraising through social media.
