We’re very excited here at CAfS to announce that we have been lucky enough to be chosen as one of 100 environmental charities that will take part in The Big Give’s Green Match Fund!
This means that for every donation that we receive this week (22-29 April), the money will be doubled by our benefactor The Oglesby Charitable Trust.
Our donations page is now live and our generous supporters can make one donation with twice the impact!
This is our Race To Zero campaign as the money will go towards boosting our ability to reach more people across Cumbria as we work towards our net-zero carbon goal in the lead-up to Cop26 in November.
We have a campaign target of £5000 which means that only £2500 in donations needs to be raised.
If you have any spare cash that you can donate to the campaign, we would be indescribably grateful if you could do so during the week in question. The money you donate will be immediately doubled and so please give what you can and let the match funding do the rest.
The inaugural Green Match Fund campaign has been organised by the Big Give, the UK’s biggest online match funding platform in partnership with the Environmental Funders Network (EFN). All public donations made to participating charities via theBigGive.org.uk during the week of the campaign (22-29 April) will be matched up to a specific amount. Both the Big Give and EFN’s belief is that bringing charities together in a larger campaign tied into World Earth Day will help draw attention to environmental issues as well as help raise vital funds ahead of the important milestones which will occur this year e.g. COP26
