This year, Groundwater Relief are applying to take part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge, the UK's biggest online match funding campaign.
What are We Fundraising For?
We're hoping to raise £8000 in order to develop a phone application to support the collection of groundwater level data at low cost. Our aspiration is for the app to enable local water users to: capture groundwater data and share this with water authorities; to report on problems with their water supplies to their water providers; and to develop a greater understanding of their own groundwater resources.
The development of a phone application normally costs over £30,000. The App developer we are working with has agreed to heavily subsidise the monitoring app development and is providing Groundwater Relief with a 75% discount. This £8000 therefore represents significant value for money.
This phone application could be used with Groundwater Relief's Pocket Dipper (or any other manual groundwater monitoring tool).
Becoming a Pledger
We are currently inviting individuals to become Groundwater Relief "Pledgers". Pledgers are individuals who make promises of funding which will be used as match funds (in combination with "Champion" funds sourced by the Big Give) to double online donations made to our charity during the Christmas campaign.
The minimum pledge is £100. We need to raise a total of £2000 in pledges in order to raise the £8000 required for the development of the app.
Please consider making a pledge to help us reach our target. For individuals who do Pledge, Groundwater Relief will invite these individuals to engage with the process of App development and testing.
If you are willing and interested in supporting GWR as one of our Pledgers then please follow the link below and fill in the basic details it asks for. The process is very straightforward and should not take much time.
Pledge on the Big Give website now
The deadline for pledging is 27th August 2021 at 5pm.
Thank you so much for your support.
