Big Give Christmas Challenge 2021

What is it?

The Big Give Christmas Challenge is a matched-funding campaign where donations made during the first week in December are DOUBLED by funds already pledged by supporters.

When is it?

The Christmas Challenge runs between 30th November & 7th December 2021. Check out the official Big Give announcement video!

How Does it Work?

A Pledge is a promise of match funding made to a Charity. The pledge is conditional on the charity receiving the equivalent amount in online donations on The Big Give platform. You will not be asked to contribute more than your pledged amount.

A Pledge cannot be fulfilled until after the match funding campaign has finished on 5th December. Every penny of your pledge will be doubled by the fundraising during the week of the Christmas Challenge.


Pledger’s funds play 3 key roles:

  • You unlock entry to the Christmas Challenge for LAFF
  • Other supporters are more likely to contribute to LAFF during the challenge week if they know their donation will be matched by a pledger. One donation, twice the impact!
  • If we secure enough pledges, we may be chosen by a Big Give Champion who will contribute even more to our matching funds, potentially trebling your original pledge amount!

By agreeing to pledge to LAFF’s Christmas Challenge, you can double the impact of your donation, help us to maximise our fundraising efforts, and ensure that disadvantaged children and young people can build a brighter future!

To become a Pledger, please complete the Big Give’s online form by 5pm 27th August 2021.
