Our Green Match Fund is designed specifically for charities working on environmental issues as part of their core mission. Launching to coincide with #WorldEarthDay (20 – 27 April 2023), this is an opportunity to make an extraordinary difference to some of our planet’s biggest challenges.
- Champions for Children 2023 by The Childhood Trust
The Childhood Trust launched the Champions for Children match funding campaign to provide unrestricted funding to charities working to alleviate the impact of poverty on children and young people across London. The campaign will run between 6 – 20 June 2023.
