Charitable funders can apply for a share of £85m in government match-funding when they distribute money to deal with the coronavirus crisis. The Community Match Challenge opens today, and is funded from the £750m coronavirus support package for charities announced by the Treasury in April.

The scheme will be open until 31 August. It is also available to individual philanthropists, and the government anticipates matching applications in the range of £5m to £20m, according to the eligibility criteria.

A further £4.8m will go to the Voluntary and Community Sector Emergencies Partnership, according to a statement by culture minister Oliver Dowden.
