The scheme will run from Thursday 18th April to Thursday 25th April 2024, and supports charities tackling environmental challenges in the UK and abroad.
The week-long campaign, timed to coincide with World Earth Day on Monday 22nd April 2024, will see donations to over 200 participating charities taking part doubled by Big Give’s match funding ‘champions’, including companies, philanthropists and foundations.
Applications for the fund are open until Tuesday 16th January 2024, and Big Give aims to raise more than £10mn for the charities taking part – more than double the amount raised last year.
Big Give raised over £4.3 million in aid of the 178 charities who took part in the Green Match Fund in April 2023, receiving over 22,000 donations from across the UK. Participating charities included:
o The Wildlife Trusts, which raised £ 243,346.
o Rewilding Britain, which raised £ 217,370, and
o Friends of the Earth Charitable Trust, which raised £200,215.
