You have until Friday 6th July to apply to the Big Give's Christmas Challenge - the UK's biggest online match funding campaign!
The Big Give runs the Christmas Challenge, the UK's biggest online match funding campaign where donations to participating charities are doubled for one week only (from #Giving Tuesday 27th Nov - 4th December).
Last year the Christmas Challenge raised a record breaking £11.3 million and the Big Give is on the lookout for charities to run an even bigger campaign in 2018.
Applications are open for only a short while longer until the deadline on Friday 6th July. For more information, please see here.
The campaign will help charities raise vital funds and build their fundraising confidence and skills. Key benefits include:
- Access to funding from generous Champions (funding secured by the Big Give)
- A powerful incentive to donors to have their donations doubled
- Attract new supporters (95% of charities did so in the 2017 campaign)
- Raising charity profile and joining others to raise awareness of the issue
Since its 2008 launch, the Christmas Challenge has raised over £90 million for participating charities, with donations matched by Big Give ‘Champions’: Trusts, Foundations, philanthropists and corporates who support the initiative, as well as charities’ major donors.
To apply, you simply need to log in or create a free Big Give account. You can find more information and do so here. You can contact the Big Give via firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
