Applications are now open for this year’s Big Give Christmas Challenge, the UK’s biggest match funding campaign. We have millions of pounds of match funding available for a wide range of charities.
In these challenging times, match funding can be a fantastic opportunity to encourage more people to give and people to give more. Would you be able to share this opportunity with charities in your network?
We will also be holding two webinars on Thursday 27th May from 12pm – 1pm and Monday 7th June from 12pm – 1pm. for charities interested in finding out further information about the Christmas Challenge.
Please find a summary text below which can be included in emails / newsletters / web copy. I have also included text for a shorter social media post.
Applications for the Christmas Challenge 2021 are now open. The Christmas Challenge is a week-long match funding campaign which launches on #GivingTuesday, 30th November. Last year, the Christmas Challenge raised a record breaking £20.1m for 764 charities!
Up to £25,000 of match funding is available per charity. There are millions of pounds of match funding available for a wide range of charities.
As well as accessing Champion funds, evidence shows that donors are more likely to give, and to give more in match funding campaigns. The Big Give also offers a free suite of resources, training and guidance for all participating charities.
The deadline for applications is 5pm Friday 2nd July (although the Big Give may be able to accept late applications). For more information and how to apply visit: https://www.thebiggive.org.uk/s/christmas-challenge.
