We have been blown away by the support we have received since the pandemic started and we would like to thank everyone for their generosity. Thanks to you, we have been able to continue to support our members throughout the pandemic.
We are pleased to say we have secured more matched funding so if you donate via Local Giving between Tuesday 27 October and Monday 9 November, you can get your donations doubled (subject to available funds).
We wanted to raise £4,000 to help us to continue our remote support which we are thrilled to say we have hit. Can you help us hit our new target of £6,000?
About Matched Funding
Donations up to £5,000 will be matched and BMSTC can benefit from an unlimited number of matched donations.
This one is a little different to the matched funding we had before. This time it is through a website called Local Giving. There is a £1 million matched funding pot for all the charities taking part (not just BMSTC sadly!) and the matched funding will be applied on a first come, first served basis.

The small print
There is some criteria set out by Local Giving.
- Matched funding will only be applied when there are funds to do so and during the dates set. Any early or late donations will not be matched!
- Only donations made online can be matched. The source donor must make all online donations. Any donations that are suspected to be sourced by the offline collection of donors will have match funding removed.
- A donor can make as many donations as they wish; however, donations will only be matched up to the limits during both stages of the campaign. Donors will be eligible to have one donation matched per charity during the first stage of the campaign and one donation matched per charity during the second stage of the campaign. They can receive match funding on their donations up to £75 during the first stage of the campaign and up to an additional £5,000 during the second stage. The maximum amount of match funding a donor can access on their donations is £5,075.
- International donations CAN be matched.
