What is it?
The Green Match Fund is a match funding campaign for charities which are working on environmental issues as part of their core mission.
All public donations made to participating charities via theBigGive.org.uk during the week of the campaign (22-29 April) will be matched up to a specific amount.
Match funding is being provided by The Big Give’s Champions which include The Reed Foundation, Garfield Weston Foundation and a number of other philanthropists and funders.
How can you help Lake District Foundation take part?
We’ve been selected by the Big Give to take part in the Green Match Fund Campaign, enabling us to unlock £10,000 of additional funding! We’re asking our supporters to donate to the Lake District Foundation’s online campaign when it goes live on theBigGive.org.uk.
All donations must be made via our campaign page on the theBigGive.org.uk donations must be made using a debit or credit card.
How does the matching work?
During the week of the Green Match Fund, donations made to participating charities are doubled. Each charity has a matching pot made up of Champion funds to double online donations made via theBigGive.org.uk.
When does it take place?
The live campaign kicks off at midday on World Earth Day (Thursday 22nd April) and ends a week later on Thursday 29th April (at midday).
Donations will be doubled by the charity’s Champion funds, until the match funds have been exhausted or the campaign has closed, whichever comes first.
- For donations to be doubled, they must be made to LDF’s campaign page
on theBigGive.org.uk with a debit/credit card by the cardholder during the live campaign.
- Donations are doubled by Champion funds until these have been used up or the campaign ends.
- Whilst there are no fees for charities to participate in the campaign, some fees are charged on online donations, calculated via the Big Give. We strongly encourage you to check how these are calculated and factor this into your donation. As a charity itself, you also have the option to donate an additional amount to contribute to the running costs of the Big Give platform, you can however choose to opt out of this. Please refer to our fees page for further info – or speak to a member of the LDF team if you have any concerns or questions.
