Please read on for information and practical advice on:

Don’t forget your local fundraising website The Good Exchange https://thegoodexchange.com which has replaced findmeagrant. The Good Exchange will automatically match your projects with eligible funding schemes from the following funders: Greenham Common Trust, Englefield Charitable Trust, Peter Baker Foundation, Hungerford Town Council, Thatcham Town Council, Newbury Town Council, Turners Court Youth Trust, Thatcham Parochial Charities and Greenham Parish Council. New funders are joining all of the time. You can create online project profiles with photographs and video and create fundraising events and invite people to fundraise for your project. Members of the public also set up fundraising challenges and events to raise money for your project on The Good Exchange. Greenham Common Trust will also continue to offer match funding on donations through the website and The Good Exchange will claim Gift Aid on donations to registered eligible projects for charities and charitable organisations registered for Gift Aid with HMRC.   Can you confirm you have received this and will make the change. Thanks
