The Summer Give Awards is a chance for the Big Give to recognise the campaign’s most successful participating charities. Winning charities will be awarded cash prizes of £1,000 and upwards with charities judged by representatives of The Childhood Trust. Charities will be judged on the following criteria:

  • How much they have exceeded their Summer Give fundraising target: the more charities raise above their target, the more chance they have of winning an award.
  • How they engaged with their supporters in the campaign: we’re looking for examples of great planning, execution and learning to be used as a showcase to other charities.
  • Creative marketing approaches: did the charity market the Summer Give in a new, different or innovative way?

There will be a special award for the most original solution to meeting the needs of children and young people this summer.

Applications for the Summer Give Awards 2017 are now closed. Winners will be announced soon!
