The Importance of The BigGive Campaign

Why The BigGive Christmas Campaign is so important.


The Big Give 2017 Christmas Campaign raised £22,000 last year – enough to pay the school fees of three students. This year we aim to raise another £20,000 – and the campaign could be worth much more.

The Christmas Challenge is attractive to donors as every £1 they give to us in online donations is doubled. The public appeal releases funds promised by both our key supporters and institutional donors making every online donation go so much further. This matched funding means each gift is doubled in value. Promised as a pledge can be worth four times the value.

Our pledgers are vital to the success of the campaign as they unlock the door which enables gifts to be doubled. They provide the first contributions which helps create a matching pot.

If we are successful in raising our target of £5,000 in pledged funds, we stand a chance of gaining additional matching funds from institutional donors supporting The BigGive.

Together they form the matching pot, which is used to double the value of online donations during the campaign from 27 November until 4 December, 2018.
