Grow Your Tenner 2016

Grow Your Tenner 2016 starts at 10am on Tuesday, October 18th – doubling the size of donations to WACT made through the Localgiving fundraising website.

Localgiving is matching one-off donations pound-for-pound up to £10, and monthly direct debit donations of up to £10 per month. With Gift Aid added, £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 WACT.

Grow Your Tenner 2016 ends when the £345,000 fund runs out or at 5pm on Thursday, November 17th, whichever is the soonest. But all monthly direct debits made before the deadline will be honoured and doubled for up to three months.

Please note that the donation rules have changed for this year. Supporters can claim up to £10 of match funding via one-time donations for a chosen charity. This can be via one donation of £10 or more, or several smaller donations that add up to £10.

No more than one direct debit may be set up per individual to each charity. This can be for more than £10 but only a tenner will be match-funded, for three months.

Each charity can receive up to a maximum of £2,500 of match funding through the campaign – £1,000 from one-time donations and £1,500 from direct debits.

To make a donation, visit https://localgiving.org/charity/wact as soon as possible after 10am on October 18th. 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.

Several members already have active monthly direct debits to WACT through Localgiving – for which we are extremely grateful. If you are one of these supporters, you might like to cancel the mandate and restart it so that it benefits from Grow Your Tenner matchfunding.
