The REAL Ethical Fund was recently approached by EACH - East Anglia Children's Hospices to apply for a grant as part of the COVID-19 Emergency Fund. After being successful in receiving an intial grant, conversation sparked up about the upcoming EACH Virtual Quiz.
With our thinking caps firmly on the REAL Ethical Group and EACH decided we could do more! REF agreed to match the first 100 entries at £5 per houshold to the QUIZ and working together with EACH and REAL Fundraising cross promoting the quiz on their social channels ensured maximum visibility of the matched gifts.
With our joint push to get households signed up the total amount taken from ticket sales alone was £1,365 which REF added an additional £500 to. The final amount raised (including £500 match funding from REF) was a fantastic £4,319!
I think the matched funding scheme definitely helped to push up ticket entry numbers, which in turn also helped to raise more from donations on the night. It has been a brilliant help in raise lots more money for EACH at this crucial time. Thank you! - EACH
