Thanks to the folks at [Charity Science] I’m now helping out with donation matches. There’s a fair bit of evidence that this encourages people to give more1 - and if you’re planning to give already, it can be a good way to increase the impact of your donations!

My first chunk is £2000 towards a fundraiser for AMF that’s being doubled by Allan Saldanha, and then doubled again by Charity Science, of which my contribution is part.

Sadly, it’s closed now, so I can’t encourage you to donate, but if you’re a regular donor, you might consider participating in donation matches to make your contributions go a little bit further.

  1. See here for a positive take, and here for a somewhat more sceptical discussion. Regardless, the effect appears likely to at least be positive!
