I’d like ClientEarth to take on a project or legal action. 

ClientEarth is a public interest law organisation, funded as a charity. Our finite resources, limits set by charity law, laws on access to the courts and laws on what kind of advice we are allowed to provide mean it is not possible for us to engage with campaigns brought to us by the public.

Match campaigns

Find out more about our match campaigns and how they work.

What is a match funded-campaign?

A match-funded campaign is an opportunity for you to increase your impact on specific appeals. During a match campaign, every donation you give is doubled, so a £1/$1 donation becomes £2/$2, and a £100/$100 donation becomes £200/$200. All donations will be matched until the match-giving fund we have allocated for a campaign is exhausted. Any donations received after the allocated match campaign will not be matched.

The maximum donation amount from any individual for this campaign is £10,000 or $10,000.

If we exceed our specified match appeal target, we reserve the right to continue matching donations. We will update our donation page as soon as possible after we stop matching donations. All donations received after this point will still be gratefully received and contribute towards our crucial work.

Where does the match money come from?

It depends on the campaign, but most ClientEarth match campaigns are made possible with the help of our generous major donors. Our Philanthropy team works with a number of highly committed individuals who are passionate about making a difference for the planet.

Do you accept company match donations?

Yes! You can make your gift for the planet go even further by asking your human resources department if your employer is set up to match donations to ClientEarth. A matching gift is a donation by a corporation that matches an employee's donation to an eligible nonprofit. Many employers hold workplace giving campaigns by matching gifts made via payroll deduction or credit card.
