Localgiving.com is a not-for-profit organisation helping small, local charities and community groups to reach more supporters, raise more money and help more people. Their goal is to make online fundraising easy for community groups and their supporters. They provide web space on their website for the PAB and help with claiming back gift aid. Gift Aid allows charities to reclaim the 25% basic tax rate on every donation made by an individual UK tax payer so even the smallest charity or community group can benefit from Gift Aid.
Each charitable organisation that appears on Localgiving.com has been validated by either their local Community Foundation or UKCF in a process approved by the Charity Commission. This means that the PAB is recognised as a responsible, worthy charity and that your donation will be appropriately spent.
When Localgiving secures funding, they run ‘Match Fund’ campaigns, where they match all donations made during that period. For example, after a small processing fee, a £10 single donation with Gift Aid means the PAB receives £21.54! Last year, this generated an additional £1,400 for the PAB. When campaigns are running, this be stated clearly on the PAB page of their site at www.localgiving.com/charity/mypab
