To celebrate Small Charity Week 2018, Localgiving is launching the Small Charity Week Challenge. Running between Monday 18th June and Sunday 24th June, this campaign aims to highlight the amazing, and wide ranging causes that local charities and community groups support.
During the campaign all Localgiving members will be placed into 5 leaderboards based on the primary cause they support. Throughout the week, all participants will be ranked on the leaderboard according to the number of unique online donors who sponsor them. At the end of the campaign £4,000 in prizes will be awarded to top five organisations on each leaderboard - with prizes ranging from £50 to £300.
Chris Dormer, Head of Business Development at Localgiving, said: “Each year, Small Charity Week gives us an opportunity to celebrate the work of grassroots groups. Small, local charities are seldom given the credit they deserve for the incredible work they do. The range of services and support these groups provide is staggering – the aim of this campaign is to show just how varied and vital the work of our community based, and focused, groups really is!”
Small Charity Week is run by the FSI and there are an array of activities available for charitable groups to get involved in throughout the week.
