What is the Christmas Challenge?
The Christmas Challenge, founded by entrepreneur and philanthropist Sir Alec Reed CBE, is the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign, helping UK-registered charities raise funds for their cause. It offers supporters of participating charities the opportunity to have their donation doubled on theBigGive.org.uk during the week of the campaign. Since the Big Give launched the campaign in 2008, the Christmas Challenge has raised over £90 million for thousands of charity projects.
Applications for the Christmas Challenge 2018 are now open. To take part in this year’s campaign please submit your charity’s application by 5pm on 6th July 2018. The Christmas Challenge 2018 will run from midday #GivingTuesday 27th November – midday Tuesday 4th December.
