UK Aid Match brings charities, the public and UK government together to collectively change the lives of some of the world’s poorest people. It also gives the British public an opportunity to engage with international development issues and have a say in how UK aid is spent. It is designed to provide opportunities for the UK public to engage with international development issues and to allow the British public to have a say in how UK aid is spent, whilst boosting the impact of the very best civil society projects to reach the poorest people in developing countries.
The latest round of UK Aid Match is calling for proposals from British charities working towards achieving any of the Global Goals with a particular focus on: (1) The longer-term impacts of COVID-19; (2) Girls’ education; and (3) Ending preventable deaths through tackling malnutrition or malaria. For this round, applicants are being encouraged to deliver appeal plans which include fundraising mechanisms that are facilitated or organised digitally and represent a new, or experimental, approach for that organisation. This could mean anything from re-thinking traditional challenges and events, activating peer to peer engagement strategies, exploring new incentives and digital journeys to trialling gamification.
The UK Aid Match fund is open to organisations that are: (1) UK-based; (1) non-governmental and not-for-profit organisation; (3) deliver poverty reduction projects in up to 2 of DFID’s eligible countries be able to provide published annual audited accounts or financial statements for the previous 2 years.
The countries that are eligible for organisations to implement their UK Aid Match-funded projects in are: (1) the lowest 50 countries in the UN Human Development Index (HDI); and (2) certain countries the UK Department for International Development (DFID) considers to be of high or moderate fragility.
Grant sizes range from £100,000 to more than £1,000,000. DFID will match all eligible donations from the public to the organisation’s appeal over an agreed period of up to 3 months and up to a maximum of £2,000,000. For every £1 donated to a UK Aid Match charity appeal, the government will also contribute £1 of UK aid, to help these projects go further in changing and saving lives. UK Aid Match is funded from the international development budget, for donations made by individuals living in the UK.
There is a 2 stage application process to apply for the scheme. In the first instance applicants submit a concept note. Applicants successful at the concept note stage will be invited to submit a full application. The application deadline is 18 December 2020.
