The Trust is asking its members and supporters to consider making donations via a fundraising website which doubles donations of up to £10.
This unmissable opportunity comes through the Localgiving.com Grow Your Tenner initiative, with the potential to raise £10,000 on top of money given to our good cause.
Grow Your Tenner 2015 launches at 10am on Tuesday, October, 13th. It ends when the matchfunding money runs out or at 5pm on Wednesday, November 18th.
Localgiving will be matching one-time donations pound-for-pound up to £10, and monthly direct debit donations up to £10 per month. This time, though, the campaign continues for three months instead of six as last year.
The charities taking part are eligible to receive up to a maximum of £10,000 of matchfunding, made up of £9,000 for direct debit donations and £1,000 for one-time donations. There is a limit of five one-time donations per individual.
With Gift Aid added, a donation of £10 will be made up to a total of £22.50, so please make sure you are registered for Gift Aid if you make a donation. Three monthly donations of £10 can grow to a total of £67.50 for the Trust.
Last year, we received more than £8,200 through Grow Your Tenner.
To double a tenner – or tenners – visit the Wey & Arun Canal Trust page at www.localgiving.com/charity/wact as soon as possible after 10am on October 13th. Any donations made through the website before then will not benefit from matchfunding, so please wait until the launch time.
Click on either the Donate Now or Give Monthly button to make a pledge, and remember to click that you are registered for Gift Aid.
Thank you for your support – we will keep you informed about the progress of Grow Your Tenner.
