What is the Christmas Challenge?

The Christmas Challenge (the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign) helps UK-registered charities to raise funds for their projects by doubling donations when the campaign goes live on November 29th 2022. You can find full details of the Christmas Challenge, and how your pledge will enable us to be part of the UK's largest Matched Funding Challenge, on Research shows that 84% of donors are more likely to give in a match funding campaign and that donations are on average 2.5 times bigger so we’re very excited about the opportunity to take part.


How does it work?

  • The matching pots used to double donations for charities taking part in the Christmas Challenge are made up of a combination of funds. These are funds sourced by the charity (‘Pledges’) and funds sourced by the Big Give (‘Champions’) which are available if we are successfully selected by a Champion. 
  • The timeline for fulfilling the pledge (i.e. transferring the funds to us) is 6th December 2022 – 16th January 2023.
  • Fulfilment of your pledge is conditional on us receiving the appropriate online donations during the campaign. You will only be required to pay a pro-rata amount of your pledge if we don’t hit our online target - it's our guarantee to you that we are committed to raising additional donations.
  • Please note that if you pledge to Water Survival Box you will not be able to make an online donation to us in December because your pledge will be used to match these donations.
