Grassroots Grants for Berkshire - Double your Impact

The Grassroots Endowment Challenge for Berkshire (Bracknell Forest, Reading, Slough, West Berkshire, Windsor and Maidenhead and Wokingham) is an exciting opportunity aimed at doubling the impact of charitable giving in order to help strengthen your local community.

This innovative programme encourages companies and individuals to develop sustainable funds which will support and develop the voluntary and community groups who are tackling need at the grassroots of our local community - both now and in the future.

Between 2008 and 2011, thanks to a special government incentive, every £1 that you give will be matched by 50p. Your £1 could be worth £1.92*. If you are a higher rate tax payer you may claim tax relief so the gift only costs you 75p – more than doubling your impact.

* If you are a UK tax payer, we can claim Gift Aid on your gift which will add an extra 28p for every £1 you donate.
