4. Fundraise

You can also support the Winter Warmth Appeal by organising your own fundraiser. We’ve created the Winter Warmth Appeal Fundraising Guide to help you.

4. Become a Match Challenge Champion

Each year, we run our own match funding challenge to encourage people to donate to the appeal. Pledges from our match funding champions create a pot, which is used to double donations, £1 for £1 over a found week period. It is a huge incentive and encourages new donors to come forward and existing donors to give more.

A huge thank you to this years match funding champions WCF Ltd, the John Laing Charitable Trust, Sellafield Ltd, Cumbria County Council, Roselands Trust, Nuclear Waste Services, The Johnson Fund, Brian and Ann Clark Fund, The Harvey Family Fund, The Hadfield Trust, Rural Getaways Ltd and private donors. Please contact Jenny Benson, Director of Programmes & Partnerships if you want to know more about becoming a match funding champion this winter: jenny@cumbriafoundation.org or call 01900 829376
