UK Aid has announced that the UK Aid Match programme is now open for applications. UK Aid Match brings charities, the British public and the UK government together to change the lives of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people. For every £1 donated to a UK Aid Match charity appeal by an individual living in the UK, the UK government will also contribute £1 of UK aid up to £2million.
To be eligible to apply for UK Aid Match funding, the applicant must be a UK registered, non-governmental, not-for-profit organisation and the appeal must aim to raise at least £100,000 within a three-month period.
Proposed projects must be implemented in countries ranked in either the lowest 50 countries in the Human Development Index (HDI) or in certain countries the UK Department for International Development (DFID) considers to be of high or moderate fragility
There is a two-stage application process. The first step is to submit concept notes by the 12th November 2019. Organisations successful at this stage will be able to submit full applications in February 2020.
