Kick off your fundraising plans for 2024 by applying to one of the Big Give match-funding campaigns this year. Not only can you be awarded match-funding to boost donations, you can access our range of support to develop your fundraising skills and grow your charity’s profile!

Kind2Mind 2024
Mental health challenges affect a large proportion of the population – many of which go unseen or unsaid. Kind²Mind seeks to support charities offering valuable services to address, prevent, research, treat, campaign and raise awareness about mental health as part of their work. Applicants must demonstrate the impact of how their work improves the mental health of people in the UK. Applications will be considered from:

  • Charities that improve, support or positively impact mental health as part of their core mission (as defined by mental health being part of their charitable objects) can use funds raised through the campaign on an unrestricted basis.
  • Charities that do not have the improvement of mental health in their charitable objects can apply to the fund with a restricted mental health project. Charities applying for a restricted project, in their application, must a) clearly articulate the mental health impact of the project and b) clearly articulate the charity’s previous impact in improving mental health. Please ensure the relevant questions in the ‘Extra Info’ section of the application form are completed.

Charities have two different models they can choose to apply for. Charities seeking to raise:

  • Up to £10,000  in public donations (to be doubled by match funds) through the 1:1 model.
  • Up to £100,000  in public donations (to be doubled by match funds) through the pledge model. Charities can receive up to £50k in Champion funds.

You can watch and share this webinar to understand how the multi-model campaign works. Applications are open now and close on Friday, 9th February. You can find further information on the Kind²Mind page.

Champions for Children 2024 by The Childhood Trust
The Childhood Trust launched the Champions for Children match funding campaign to provide unrestricted funding to charities working to alleviate the impact of poverty on children and young people across London. The key criteria for this campaign is that charities can be from outside London, but the project they need to apply to be eligible must be working exclusively with disadvantaged children in London.

Applications are open now and close on Friday, 9th February, and you can find further information on the Champions for Children page.

If Champions for Children 2024 is something that interests you and your organisation, The Childhood Trust encourages you to attend one of their Information Sessions for charities in January. This will be an opportunity for you to:

  • Meet and get to know The Childhood Trust’s campaigns team
  • Learn about the application process and what you can expect in the Trust’s due diligence process
  • Listen to an in-depth introduction to the Trust’s New Evaluation Framework and understand what it means for charity partners’ reporting
  • Have any questions answered by The Childhood Trust

The better you understand The Childhood Trust’s new evaluation framework, the better your campaign and reporting will be. It is therefore strongly recommended that you attend one of these information webinars by booking a place through this link and submitting any questions you have!
