Community Foundation for Calderdale are offering support sessions for groups to join http://www.Localgiving.com and you just need to email us to find out more.
Having your group on Localgiving.com gives you a webpage that you can easily update, where you can ask for volunteers, and importantly ask for donations towards your project. Localgiving.com is specially designed for community groups – including Scouts and Guides, PTA‘s, Cricket or Football, Community Associations or Faith based community groups.
It allows you to collect donations from people online, and you can get the Gift Aid even if you are not a registered charity.
The support you can get locally includes training, one to one support and peer group learning, and we run promotions such as Match Funds or publicity opportunities.
Come and see for yourself. Localgiving.com will be at the VAC Funding Fair next week on Wednesday 29th February at the Elsie Whitely Centre. There will be a workshop in the afternoon and we‘ll be available to answer questions all day. Contact: Rachel Julian firstname.lastname@example.org or call Community Foundation for Calderdale on 01422 349700
