Double your donations with #ChristmasChallenge19

Written by The Big Give

The Big Give is gearing up to this year’s #ChristmasChallenge19 which kicks off on #GivingTuesday!

In the UK’s biggest match funding campaign, supporters can have their donations doubled and have a choice of over 590 participating charities to support. 

Now in its 12th year, The Christmas Challenge launches at midday on 3rd December and runs for just seven days until 10th December 2019.

Throughout the week, participating charities will see supporters’ donations matched (up to £50,000 per organisation), doubling the impact of their gifts.

What we have achieved so far

The Christmas Challenge was launched in 2008 by Sir Alec Reed CBE and is now the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign.

It offers supporters and charities the opportunity to have their donations doubled on when the campaign goes live at noon on #GivingTuesday, 3rd December 2019. 

Last year, the Christmas Challenge raised £13 million, a £3.5 million increase from funds raised in 2017.

The Big Give is a registered charity (1136547) with a mission to promote causes and inspire people to give through a crowdfunding platform for charities, specialising in match funding.  Since it was founded in 2007, The Big Give has helped to raise over £113 million for UK-registered charities.
