Endowed Funds

Grassroots Grants - Government incentive
to double the impact of your local giving!

The Grassroots endowment match challenge for Birmingham, Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton is an exciting opportunity to more than double the impact of your charitable giving; strengthening your local community.

Until 31st March 2011, every £1 that is donated into the endowment will be match funded 100% by a special government incentive e.g. a £10 donation can be match funded to £20 - which is then worth £25.60 with Gift Aid; and even more if you are a higher rate tax payer – more than doubling your impact!

The match funding incentive is part of £130 million nationwide drive by the Government to support thousands of groups and projects across the country.
