Grassroots Grants for Greater Manchester - Government Incentive to double the impact of your local giving
The Grassroots Endowment Challenge for Greater Manchester is an exciting opportunity to double the impact of charitable giving that strengthens your local community.
£2.2 million is available here in Greater Manchester to offer in match funding for donors wanting to encourage and fund the long term growth of local small charities and voluntary organisations – organisations which provide really effective support to people in need, such as friendship clubs for older people, support groups for people with disabilities and positive activities for young people.
Between 2008 and 2011, because of a special government incentive, every £1 that you give will be matched by a special government incentive so that it is worth £2.56 . 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.
