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 which helps UK-registered charities raise funds for their cause.

Since the Big Give launched the campaign in 2008, the Christmas Challenge has raised over £71 million for more than 2,500 charity projects.

How does it work?

The Christmas Challenge offers supporters of participating charities the opportunity to have their donation doubled on theBigGive.org.uk when the campaign goes live on 29th November 2016, #GivingTuesday.
