The Good Exchange offers funders the opportunity to match-fund donations made to projects on the platform. This gives applicants the opportunity to reach their fundraising target more quickly by doubling donations (or more) to their projects. For example, if a donor makes a £10 donation and a funder is match-funding £1 for every £1 donated, then the project will have raised £20 and if the applicant and project are eligible for Gift Aid this is increased to £22.50 (before fees are applied).
Funders can set up a pot of money to match donations to projects and choose what match funding ratio to apply (this is normally one-to-one but can be more if they wish) for eligible donations. For projects where match-funding on donations is available, a match-funding symbol will be displayed for easy identification.
You can also browse funding schemes using the search function (magnifying glass icon) in the top right corner of the Home Page or if logged in, use the Advanced Search to find funders who offer match-funding schemes.
Please read the eligibility criteria carefully for each individual match-funding scheme as funders will apply different rules as to which projects they decide to support and how they apply their match-funding.
