Big Give Christmas Challenge opens for applications for 2024 (deadline for entries: 5th July 2024)

Big Give has opened applications for its 2024 Christmas Challenge, with charities across all sectors invited to join the match funding campaign.

Last year’s Big Give Christmas Challenge raised a record £33 million for 1,077 charities, with over 94,000 public donations made across seven days, and the support of Big Give’s match funding Champions. 74% of participating charities reached their fundraising target.

This year, Big Give aims to set a new record. Applications for the Christmas Challenge are open until Friday 5th July 2024, and the campaign will run in line with #GivingTuesday, from Tuesday 3ed December to Tuesday 10th December 2024.

The campaign offers participating charities the opportunity to secure up to £25,000 of match funding from one of Big Give’s Champion match funders. Of the charities eligible to receive funding last year, 93% received a match funding offer from one of Big Give’s Champion funders.

This year’s campaign is supported by The Reed Foundation, Julia & Hans Rausing Trust, The Childhood Trust, Candis, EQ Foundation, The Hospital Saturday Fund, Coles-Medlock Foundation, and Monday Charitable Trust, amongst others.
