Want to give big this Christmas? Now’s the perfect time…
Since being founded by Sir Alec Reed in 2007, the Big Give has helped to raise over £78 million for UK-registered charities – and they’re not stopping there.
With their Christmas Challenge launching at 12PM on the 28th of November, now’s the perfect time to get involved and help make a difference. Here’s how you can take part:
What is the Big Give?
The Big Give is a non-profit organisation, which provides a platform for individuals to discover charities and projects of interest, and make donations.
They also offer the opportunity to double your donations throughout the year, through match funding campaigns – the biggest of which being the Christmas Challenge.
What is the Christmas Challenge?
The Christmas Challenge is the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign, which helps UK-registered charities raise funds for their cause.
How does it work?
The Big Give offers supporters of participating charities the chance to have their donation doubled on thebiggive.org.uk when the Christmas Challenge campaign launches every year.
The match funding comes from a variety of sources including commitments from charities own key supporters as well as the Big Give ‘Champions’.
This year the campaign is launching on #GivingTuesday and is an excellent way of making your contribution to the national movement of giving that follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Which charities are involved?
Over 300 charities have been selected to take part this year and will be raising funds for a wide variety of important causes. With projects spanning water and sanitation in Africa, child poverty in London, the arts, education and so much more, you’re sure to find a cause that you are passionate about.

How can I take part?
The Christmas Challenge 2017 will be taking place from midday on 28th November until midday on 5th December or until match funds are exhausted, whichever is first. Don’t miss the opportunity to make your money have twice the impact on a charity of your choice this Christmas.
One donation, twice the impact. It’s that simple.
So, if you want to help support a worthy cause this Christmas, and would like to see your money doubled for the cause you care about most, visit the Big Give Christmas Challenge now.
