First-time donors to the Encephalitis Society can have their money doubled if they make a gift of over £500.
One of our funders, the Four Acre Trust, has generously agreed to match any donation we receive from first-time supporters between now and the end of September.
"We rely on donations from our wonderful members and supporters," said Stephanie Dalton, our Trust Fundraising Manager. "Without your help, we couldn’t provide a listening ear and expert advice through our helpline, bring together people affected by encephalitis through virtual and in-person events, or be part of innovative research into the condition, including the connection between encephalitis and COVID-19."
"If you are passionate about the work the Encephalitis Society does, but have not supported us financially before, we need your help to reach our target of raising £20,000 by the end of September. It is quite simple - any gift you make over £500 will be matched, pound for pound. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to really help us at a time when charities, such as ours, are feeling the pinch."
