From our experience with last years applications, we felt applicants thought match funding was harder to do than it actually is. To help with your application we’ve added examples of how you should value MATCH FUNDING when completing the forms.
Rushey Green Community Projects can either match the value of cash or materials donated to your project, or we can match fund the volunteering hours that are donated to you. We value volunteers as a core resource – so for every hour each volunteer donates to your project, we will match fund their time with £11.09 towards your project costs
