About Us

Localgiving is the UK’s leading membership and support network for local charities and community groups. It aims to empower grassroots organisations to fundraise online, connect with supporters and take control of their financial future. In addition, it provides advocacy for the local voluntary sector and works to secure third-party funding for its members. It provides free training opportunities, fundraising resources and regular incentivised giving campaigns to help groups raise funds.

Localgiving is a not-for-profit social enterprise, owned by registered charities; the Localgiving Foundation and UK Community Foundations. Founded in 2008 by Marcelle Speller OBE, it has since supported over 4,000 local charities to fundraise online and processed over £10m in donations, Gift Aid and match funding.
