MLT Pledge for Christmas Challenge NOW OPEN

Our Charity The Motivation and Learning Trust has now registered with the Big Give Christmas Challenge to raise funds for 84 Learners and Staff to go on a 4 Day Educational Tour to visit the Battlefields of Normandy in May of 2021. We are hoping to raise a total of £25,000 by gaining £6,250 in pledges, £6,250 in match-funding and the final £12,500 from the online campaign in December. There are 2 phases for donors – pledges, followed by the Online Campaign.

The link for those wishing to make pledges is now open but closes on 28 August 2020. You can help us by pledging a sum of not less than £100 before the pledge deadline. Pledges must be made online following the link here: MLT Pledge for Christmas Challenge    Repayment of pledges is to be made after the Online Christmas Challenge Campaign has ended on 08 December 2020. At that time pledges can be paid directly to our charity in any way convenient to the pledger. Details for repayment will be sent to you nearer the due date. To achieve our aim of gaining the maximum allowable match-funding we must achieve our pledge target of £6,250.

Once the pledge deadline has passed you will still be able to make a donation during the campaign period 01-08 December. However, please note that if you have already made a pledge, the rules state that you, as an individual, are not permitted to make a donation during the online campaign.

The main Christmas Challenge online Campaign will take place over the period of 01-08 December 2020. Our charity will mount a co-ordinated marketing campaign prior to that event building up to “Giving Tuesday”. A short video outlining the whole process is here: The Big Give Christmas Challenge. The minimum donation during the Online Campaign is £5.

Online donations up to a maximum total of £12,500 will be eligible for match funding and if we meet our targets we will  be best placed to gain the maximum match funding of £6,250. However, I am required by the organisers to ensure that pledgers are informed that match funding is not guaranteed. However, all that our charity raises in pledges and the online campaign will go to our charity.

Thank you for taking the time to read this message and supporting our charity by pledging funds or donating during the main campaign.

Please feel free to forward this email to others who may also pledge or support our campaign.

Thank you.
