Localgiving.com announces more access to cash and training for North Yorkshire charities

Localgiving.com, the UK’s leading fundraising platform for local charities, is announcing the extension of its North Yorkshire capacity building programme, thanks to a generous grant from the Peter Sowerby Foundation. Starting this month, local charities and community groups can benefit from a free first year membership on Localgiving.com, with one to one training and support, and £25,000 in match funding opportunities.

The scheme will run until 30th June 2015 and aims to help local charities from every district across the county get online to raise funds and awareness through digital skills training and access to match funds.

David Aspinall, Chair of Trustees, Peter Sowerby Foundation said: “We recognise that there are particular fundraising challenges for smaller charities operating in rural locations. Localgiving.com offers groups an easy way to raise money online, something few smaller organisations had done before. Any increase in funding allows a charity to develop and expand its work, potentially delivering the organisation’s services to many more people. The Peter Sowerby Foundation is delighted to be supporting this important work within the rural communities across North Yorkshire.”
