One Community - Match It Funding Deadline extended to 24 June

Match It - It's back for 2022. (deadline extended to 24 June

One Community will match fund your fundraising efforts over a 3-month period. Partnering charities and community projects can raise up to £10,000 with Match it.

To get you started, they’ll supply you with the ultimate social media starter pack to help you raise as much as you can. The pack includes social media posts, web banners, cover photos, ‘how to’ guides, posters, and so much more.

In addition to funding, they are offering a bespoke organisational support package, specifically designed to support the sector. One Community has commissioned Lisa Jagger from Straightforward funding to provide a series of six workshops. All places in the workshops are fully funded by One Community Foundation.

The workshops will support the development of your organisation and include the following six workshops:

• Writing the Strongest Applications in the Shortest Possible Time

• How to Convince a Funder that You Really Do Make a Difference

• Maintaining Momentum – Four Principles of Grant Funding Success

• Practical Ways to Tell Your Story so that Funders Really Listen

• Effortless Productivity for Long Term Success

• Using Free Technology to Track and Manage Grant Applications

In addition, before you start to fundraise, they will be hosting workshops aimed at helping you understand how to use social media and online platforms to tell your story and attract donations. They will also provide you with information about online donation platforms.

Sounds great. How does it work?

• Complete the online application form by June 17th, 2022. Tell us how you’ll raise the money and what you’ll do with it. You can ringfence up to £10,000 of match funding. Be realistic in your expected fundraising total, but don’t worry if you don’t meet the target that you set yourself, because we’ll still match every pound you raise.
• An independent Grants Panel assesses the applications. A Grants Officer will let you know the outcome of your application by July 31st, 2022. If you’re successful, you can kick-start your fundraising activity from September 1st, 2022.
• Complete your fundraising by November 30th, 2022.
• Tell us how much you’ve raised and provide proof of the total raised – we’ll give you an online interim monitoring form to submit, the digital link will allow you to supply us with the evidence in a secure digital format
• We process your match funding payment which will be paid by January 2023. Once you receive the funds, you have 12 months to spend them on your project.
• 12 months from the date of the grant payment, you’ll receive a final evaluation monitoring reminder link via email. You must complete the form within four weeks of receiving the email. We’ll need to know exactly how you spent the match funding and the difference it made. At this stage you will need to provide us with receipts to show you spent the funds on what we agreed the funding could be used for.
