It was another challenging year.
The charity industry continued to be affected by the global epidemic, and the number of people in need increased during 2021. Therefore, with so many out there in need of support this Christmas (and beyond), it has become more important than ever for charities to secure funding to help maintain their amazing goals alive.
What was #Challenge Christmas21?
The Big Give is the UK’s leading online gaming funding platform, bringing together charities, philanthropists and the public to double the impact of their donations.
Every year they run the UK’s largest matching funding campaign – the Christmas Challenge. More than 900 charities participated in 2021, and those who donated saw their donation doubled.
This year, the challenge runs from November 30 to December 7.
How many were recruited?
We are happy to announce this The campaign raised a record-breaking 24.1 million pounds For 928 participating charities.
In addition, an astonishing 85% of charities have also reached their fundraising goals.
The projects spanned everything from helping clean water supply and better sanitation in Africa, to helping children deal with the effects of the plague in London, the arts, education and more.
Okay, so the Christmas challenge is over for another year. But that does not mean there are no other opportunities to give to big causes.
Big Give will continue to raise money for their charities throughout 2022, with campaign funding for year-round funding. Whether it is to deal with a global catastrophe, the ongoing effects of the epidemic, or just to help raise funds are much needed for those in the charity sector.
Remember: Charity is not just for Christmas.
