The Big Give has confirmed that they have match funding for charities improving the welfare of people in Wales to apply to this year’s Christmas Challenge campaign.
The Christmas Challenge helps UK-registered charities raise funds for their cause. It offers them the opportunity to access funding and to incentivise donors by doubling donations on theBigGive.org.uk when the campaign goes live on #GivingTuesday, 28th November 2017.
Since the Big Give launched the campaign in 2008, the Christmas Challenge has raised over £78 million for more than 2,800 charity projects.
Applications for the Christmas Challenge 2017 open on Monday 5th June 2017. Charities can register their interest in taking part now. It is recommended that you read all about the campaign, too, so you are well prepared.
The benefits of the campaign:
- Access to funding from generous Champions
- A powerful incentive to donors to have their donations doubled
- Attract new supporters (95% of charities did so in the 2016 campaign)
- Raising charity profile and joining others to raise awareness of the issue
