The Big Give Green Match Fund is now accepting applications from environmental charities seeking match funding of up to £100,000 to support their projects. As the world's first and largest online match funding platform, the Big Give has raised over £100 million for over 1,000 projects since its inception in 2007.
This match funding opportunity doubles every pound raised by eligible environmental charities, up to a maximum of £100,000. The funding can be utilised for a wide range of environmental initiatives, including tree planting, wildlife habitat creation, pollution reduction, and sustainable energy promotion.
To qualify for the Big Give Green Match Fund, charities must be registered with the Charity Commission in England and Wales or Scotland and have an annual income of at least £25,000. Additionally, applicants must be working on a project that demonstrably benefits the environment.
