Local charities can join Localgiving free under new membership deal

Local charities and community groups that are members of the FSI, NCVO, Sported, or the Small Charities Coalition can join Localgiving for free under a new deal between the organisations.

Localgiving is a donation platform aimed at helping smaller charities get to grips with online fundraising.

The programme will run until the end of the year. Groups that join before 18 October will be able to take part in Localgiving’s 'Grow Your Tenner' campaign, which matches Direct Debit donations by up to £10 a month for the first three months. 'Grow Your Tenner' raised £631,245 for 899 local charities last year.

To be eligible, charities must operate on a local/regional level rather than national organisations and have charitable aims that are not solely for the advancement of religion.

Localgiving chief executive Stephen Mallinson said the organisation sees the impact local charities have on their beneficiaries and communities every day.

“Localgiving is thrilled to announce our partnerships with the FSI, NCVO, Sported and the Small Charities Coalition, who together represent and support thousands of local charities and community groups across the UK.

The importance of the ‘S’ in ‘ESG’
In this episode, Lauren Weymouth is joined by Ketan Patel, equities fund manager at EdenTree, to delve into the issue of social investment and why that all-important ‘S’ in ESG is more relevant now than ever before. The social element of ESG often gets forgotten when thinking about investing in more ethical and sustainable ways. But, after a challenging year for all areas of society, social injustice has been highlighted, and there’s a much greater need for charities to put people at the heart of their investment decisions.
