Are we eligible for Matched Giving?

Martin Strike Jul 10, 2017 07:13AM BST

Good morning

Yesterday, my wife and I hosted a book launch at Donnington Grove Country Club in Newbury. The book is called 'Nonsensically Challenged' and is the result of a challenge for amateur writers to submit silly stories, the first 100 being published in a book. Proceeds from the books sales go to The Daisy Garland Charity who raise funds to provide equipment for children with drug-resistant epilepsy and hence still prone to life-threatening seizures.

It was a huge success, and we were delighted to raise £335. Among our 16 guests was Brian Sylvester, our Town Crier who participates in numerous charitable events in the town. He suggested that the Good Exchange may be able to help fund match. Yours is not an organisation I have heard of I'm afraid, and I write to see if you feel we have a valid case for assistance.

Many thanks for your consideration

The Good Exchange itself is a fundraising platform that brings together charitable projects with public donors, fundraisers and a range of funders. Projects can automatically match with eligible funding schemes by the funders on the platform, depending on the individual criteria. These schemes can include match funding but it would be down to the individual funders themselves whether they choose to make an offer.

On The Good Exchange, projects do have to be listed by an organisation rather than individuals. The best thing to do would be for The Daisy Garland Charity to register on the site and add a project for something they need to raise funds for. You can then add the funds you have raised, either as a fundraiser or as a donor. This amount would then be minused from Daisy’s project target and if a match funding offer was in place from a funder, depending on their Terms & Conditions your funds could be matched.
