Big Give launches matched funding campaign for arts & culture (application deadline: 15th December 2023)

Big Give’s inaugural Arts for Impact Matched Funding campaign will support arts and culture charities working to achieve societal impact across the UK.

The aim is to raise £2 million over seven days between 19 and 26 March 2024. Charities interested in taking part can apply until Friday 15th December 2023.

Big Give is partnering with New Philanthropy for Arts & Culture (NPAC) for the Arts for Impact Matched Funding campaign. NPAC works with arts organisations and other partners across the UK to develop networks of individuals interested in increasing philanthropic support of the arts and culture sector.

As with Big Give’s other matched funding campaigns, Arts for Impact will see donations to the participating charities doubled – in this case by the Big Give’s Arts for Impact match fund, which is supported by ‘champions’, who are typically philanthropists, foundations or companies.

Arts for Impact uses Big Give’s model of match funding. Arts and culture charities apply to Big Give, and their application is assessed by Big Give and its partners, New Philanthropy for Arts & Culture (NPAC). Successful charities are awarded a sum of match funding which is ring-fenced for their organisation. This match funding is unlocked by public donations given through Big Give’s online fundraising platform during the week of the campaign.

Further information is available on the Big Give website.
