Match funding for environmental charities

Posted by Christie McAlpine on 16th February 2021

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 during the week of the campaign (22-29 April) will be matched up to a specific amount.

Each participating charity will be awarded a ring-fenced amount of match funding which will be used to match public donations – either £2,500, £10,000 or £25,000. All the match funding is provided by the Big Give Champions – charities do not need to secure their own pledges for the campaign.

Charities are able to use the campaign to raise unrestricted funds and can apply for general funding rather than a specific project.
