Grow Your Tenner

Localgiving will launch this year’s Grow Your Tenner campaign at 10am on Tuesday 11th December 2018.
This year they are putting a particular emphasis on encouraging people to become long term supporters of their local charities.
With this in mind, they will match monthly donations for a full 6 months for supporters who set up a direct debit to a Localgiving charity for a year.
During Grow Your Tenner supporters can set-up a monthly donation and after the first six donations, the following six donations will be matched up to £10 a month.
All you need to do is set-up a monthly donation to your chosen charity whilst the campaign is live to secure match funding on your gift.
Grow Your Tenner will run until the match funding runs out or 12am on Thursday the 10th January – whichever comes first.

Rules of the campaign
Start date and time:
10am on Tuesday 11th of December 2018.
Please note that donations made before 10am will not be matched.
End date and time:
Whenever the match fund runs out or midday on Thursday the 10th January 2018 (whichever comes first).
Matching conditions:
Monthly donations set up during the campaign will be matched by up to £10.
The matching will take place after the first 6 donations, and be applied to the following 6 donations.
• Please note that monthly donations continue unless cancelled by the donor. It is the responsibility of the donor to cancel their Direct Debit mandate should they wish to do so.
• This campaign will not match one-time donations.
• Please remember that if you set up a monthly donation during the campaign, the matching will not apply for the first 6 donations.
• In order to benefit from match funding, please make sure you start making your donation after the campaign start time of 10am on Tuesday 11th December. Match funding is reserved at the start of the donation process, so please wait until after 10am to begin making your donation. Any donations started or set up before this time will not be matched, even if they are completed after 10am or the first payment is due to be made after the start of the campaign. Please be aware that we cannot guarantee how long the match fund will last and once all funds have been allocated no more donations will be matched.
