NORTH WEST DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME
This is a capacity building programme for groups running environmental or ‘green’ projects in their local community, and combines 12 months of support in running online fundraising campaigns, alongside up to £500 in match funding per group to be spent on the environmental/green project.
Environmental groups, or groups running ‘environmental’ projects (such as groups managing or maintaining green spaces, running recycling programmes or green energy – that sort of thing), there’s also up to £500 in match funds available per group on any and all donations made to them as members of Localgiving before the end of June 2017, to help encourage groups to get the ball rolling in their online fundraising efforts.

LOCALGIVING FOR ENVIRONMENTAL PROJECTS
Localgiving has teamed up with the People’s Postcode Lottery to provide in the North West with the chance to develop their online fundraising capabilities.
Eligible groups will receive free membership of Localgiving (normally £72) as well as up to £500 for each group in match-funding for the donations they receive through Localgiving. Groups must be running projects which enable people to engage with the environment. This can include groups where the environmental benefit is secondary, for instance a befriending service running a gardening project.
Charities affected by the recent flooding are also eligible.
