Our CAFOD Family Fast Day Appeal is receiving match funding from the UK Government during Lent 2018. But what does this mean and what difference does it make?
What match funding means
The UK Government has promised to give up to £5 million to CAFOD nutrition projects this Lent, by matching donations made by supporters like you, £1 for £1.
This deal means that you can have your donation doubled, at no extra cost to you. And more importantly, it means your gift will bring double the impact to communities around the world.
We have until Saturday 12 May 2018 to raise this money and receive the full funding from the government.
Help us tap into this opportunity
Because we have £5 million to unlock from the government, the more you give or raise this Lent, the more money you will release to go directly to nutrition projects in Zimbabwe, Eritrea and Zambia.
With match funding, your generosity will grow. And so will children around the world.
What difference does match funding make?
Your gift this Lent means a lot to people living in poverty.
It means bringing food to even more homes.
It means even more babies and toddlers growing up healthy and strong.
It means keeping even more children in school because they have the energy to learn.
Importantly, doubling your money means bringing hope not just now, but to future generations. Generations like Svondo’s.
