A personal message from our founder:

“The power of match funding through the Big Give is simply too good to keep to myself, and I would be delighted to share it with you as we safeguard the future of the charities closest to our hearts.” – Sir Alec Reed CBE


The power of match funding

Match funding can be a powerful way to leverage and increase the impact of your philanthropy. Match funding through the Big Give has multiple, proven benefits:

  • Raise even more money with your philanthropy by drawing other funding to the table
  • Increases sustainability for the charities you support by growing their capacity in other income streams
  • The incentive of match funding increases revenue, response rates and donation sizes from charities supporters
  • There are thousands of charities registered on the Big Give site, so we are sure to find ones of interest to you
  • We work with you to ensure you can conduct effective due diligence on the charities
  • Join a community of other well known philanthropists who match fund through the Big Give
  • Match fund anonymously or gain greater visibility around your philanthropy – we can help you achieve either

Who can match fund?

Typically, our philanthropists who provide match funding are trusts & foundations, corporates, high net-worth individuals or statutory bodies who wish to give more than £50,000 to UK registered charities.
